    Damage units are needed to correlate radiation effects data from different types of radiation sources and to standardize experimental and testing procedures. In the case of radiation-induced changes in the mechanical properties of structural materials, useful damage units are the production rates per unit volume of mobile defects, immobile defect clusters, and interstitial dislocation loops. Quantitative recipes are given for the production of these and other related defects in steel at reactor operating temperatures.
