The effect of heat treatment/irradiation on the microstructure and properties of iron-based reactor alloys

Abstract:

Nuclear power is considered to be a reliable way to satisfy the fast growing energy demand while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. However, many material challenges need to be addressed to safely extend the operational lifetime of current reactors and to develop advanced new reactors with maximised performance efficiency. This is due to the extreme reactor environment, of high temperatures and irradiation, that many components must withstand in-service. Iron-based alloys, especially Fe-Cr...
