Abstract : Contents: The basic changes in the structure of metals during irradiation; the probability of transition from the solid state to a liquid state during irradiation; irradiation and the nature of the electric conductivity change; irradiation and the changes in the mechanical properties; metastability of a metal and the reduction of atomic bond energy during irradiation; irradiation and the modulus of elasticity; general diagram of changes in mechanical properties of metal during irradiation; irradiation and yield point of different metals; irradiation, initial resistance to shear and cold brittleness of copper and steel; irradiation, tensile resistance of molybdenum, and physical nature of cold brittleness; irradiation and mechanical properties of metals and alloys; and irradiation and properties of metals at high temperatures.
