Structural Alloys for Nuclear Energy Applications book cover

Structural Alloys for Nuclear Energy Applications

From the multi-award winning editorial team of G. Robert Odette (UCSB) and Steve Zinkle (ORNL), and with a contributor board drawn exclusively from the leaders of each alloy discipline, Structural Alloys for Nuclear Energy Applications instructs the current and next generations of researchers and industry staff on the behavior of steels and nickel-base alloys for nuclear energy applications. The book covers phenomenon including fatigue, deformation, and embrittlement, as well as materials topics such as advanced ODS steels, RAFM steels for fusion, computational design of nuclear structural materials, and much more.

Distilling valuable archival information for international researchers in the field of radiation effects on structural materials, this full-color reference is a critical resource for graduate students and institutional staff at this time of pivotal change in the nuclear industry.
