Description

31 papers cover three wide-ranging topics:

• unique small and miniature specimens, as well as nondestructive, nonintrusive, and in-situ test techniques for measuring mechanicals and fracture properties

• application of those techniques to assess irradiation-induced embrittlement

• and actual examples of the use of these techniques to verify results of thermal annealing of vessels and to evaluate potential reactor-vessel life extension.
