Mechanical Metallurgy of Nuclear Materials PDF Summary

Mechanical Metallurgy of Nuclear Materials is a review of the mechanical metallurgy of metallic materials primarily in thermal and irradiation conditions and discusses the latest developments on this frontier. The contents contained in the book draws heavily upon the author's own research conducted over the past four decades on various metallic materials, as well as including the current research in the field. In the last six decades, materials for nuclear energy applications have seen unprecedented growth. We have come a long way in understanding alloy design and development that are resistant to aging and degradation effected by thermal, mechanical, environmental, and radiation boundary conditions. This book will detail the mechanical aspects of nuclear materials, including t materials processing, mechanical and fracture properties, and modelling and simulation of mechanical properties. It will conclude with a discussion of plant life management and extension. Provides an extensive evaluation of the mechanical behavior of nuclear materials under different service conditions in a nuclear reactor Includes a discussion of issues and challenges for materials in the past, present, and future for use in nuclear reactors Covers advances in materials for generation IV nuclear reactors
