The effect of neutron irradiation on the structure and mechanical properties of alloy steels

  • 24 Accesses

Abstract

We have studied the effect of neutron irradiation at temperatures of 200–500°C with various integral doses (1.5·1020·1021 neutrons/cm2) on the properties and microstructure of some steels with different chemical compositions and initial structures. We have shown the effect of alloying by various elements on the sensitivity of the steel to irradiation and the temperature of annealing of radiation defects of hardening.
