    STP 819 presents an international view on this subject drawing particularly on experience in laboratory studies and operating nuclear power plants in the USA and Europe. Of particular interest to the reader is the information imparted on reactor vessel embrittlement determination through periodic surveillance of specimens exposed in operating nuclear plants.
