    Forty-one peer-reviewed papers cover all aspects of the fuel cycle. The Basic Metallurgy and Processing sections represent the beginning of the fuel cycle from component design and manufacture. The BWR Corrosion, PWR Corrosion, and Deformation Mechanism sections represent component performance under nominal service conditions. The Primary Failure Mechanism and the Transient and High Temperature Performance sections cover aspects that might end the useful service life of the component. The remaining papers deal with post service life of the component in a dry storage and in a repository environment.
