    The latest edition of this popular ASTM series provides an extensive overview of the latest advances in reactor dosimetry.

    As operating nuclear power reactors have aged and continue to operate on extended operating licenses, new pressure vessel surveillance techniques have been required. Eastern European pressurized water reactors, especially those of the VVER-440 type, continue to have greater concerns about steel embrittlement, because of higher neutron radiation exposures than most Western European and US reactors. Accordingly, broader dosimetry studies are being made on the VVER reactors through retrospective dosimetry, ex-vessel dosimetry, and careful re-analysis of previously reported data.

    60 peer-reviewed papers cover:

    • Power Reactor Surveillance

    • Test Reactors, Accelerators, and Advanced Systems

    • Benchmarks and Intercomparisons

    • Cross Sections, Nuclear Data; Damage Correlations

    • Transport Calculations

    • Adjustment Methods

    • Experimental Techniques
