Effect of neutron irradiation on notch toughness properties of Boiling Water Reactor pressure vessel steels was determined. Samples from several heats of plate, weld metal, and forgings were irradiated to three different fluence levels and tested. A statistical evaluation of the data was conducted to determine regression analysis mean decreases in upper shelf energy and increases in transition temperature versus fluence.
