    The Metal Properties Council (MPC) has accepted the task of obtaining data on the properties of metals in critical areas of special need for industry in the United States (U.S.). One such area involves data on radiation effects in metals used as nuclear reactor pressure vessels. The MPC Subcommittee 6 on Materials for Nuclear Reactors, among other tasks, seeks information on availability and applicability, as well as the interpretation of data on radiation effects in reactor structural materials. In 1968, Subcommittee 6 sponsored an analytical review of data produced by periodic removal of surveillance capsules for assessing radiation effects on operating reactor pressure vessels. This work was prepared for the MPC by L. E. Steele and C. Z. Serpan, Jr., and was published in 1970 by ASTM as Special Technical Publication (STP) 481, entitled Analysis of Reactor Vessel Radiation Effects Surveillance Programs [1].
