    Fifty-seven papers provide a diverse and highly technical discussion of the influence of radiation on the microstructure and mechanical properties of structural materials. Nine sections cover: reactor pressure vessel (RPV) steels, austenitic and ferritic/martensitic alloys, proton and spallation neutron sources, radiation damage fundamentals, and other materials.

    Twenty-five papers discuss various aspects of radiation effects on RPV plate, forging, and weld materials, including radiation-induced changes on mechanical properties, radiation damage mechanisms and associated microstructural changes and the modeling of radiation embrittlement mechanisms.

    Eight papers discuss radiation-induced segregation, creep, irradiation-creep, swelling, and the associated changes in mechanical properties. Four papers discuss ferritic/martensitic alloys; and six papers examine the effects of high energy proton and spallation neutrons on the mechanical properties and corrosion behavior of various structural alloys. Finally, radiation damage fundamentals is the subject of four papers and the publication concludes with 10 papers covering a broad range of materials including vanadium alloys, tungsten rods, silicon film, silicon carbide and silicon carbide composites, shape-memory alloys, zirconium-niobium pressure tube materials, and other metals and alloys.
