Summary

From the multi-award winning editorial team of G. Robert Odette (UCSB) and Steve Zinkle (ORNL), with a contributor board drawn exclusively from the leaders of each alloy discipline, this authoritative work supports the education of the current and next generation of researchers and industry staff on the behavior of steels and nickel-base alloys for nuclear energy applications. Multi-capable alloys and steels which can withstand operation in hazardous nuclear environments are critical both to present-day in-service reactor support and maintenance, and are the essential foundation for Generation IV reactor concepts of the future. But with commercial nuclear energy vendors and operators facing the prospect of a major turnover in staff during the coming decade as existing staff reach retirement age, much of the acquired knowledge of nuclear materials runs the risk of being lost as the next generation begins to develop. Distilling valuable archival information for international researchers in the field of radiation effects on structural materials, this full colour reference is a critical acquisition for graduate students and institutional staff at this time of pivotal change in the nuclear industry. The work comprises tightly steered and strictly focused contributions adhering to common format and organization, optimizing the impact and aiding reader comprehension - rather than simply collating and collecting articles. Cross-referencing of critical phenomena marries generality of phenomena (e.g. void swelling) to specific material or application +100s of citations provide references for further reading +140 full colour figures, graphs and sidebars guide reader comprehension
