Abstract : The effects of mixed-field reactor radiation and pure gamma rays on the compression-set behavior of 3 types of elastomers (Viton A, Silicone LS-53, and Neoprene WRT) are analyzed. The available experimental data which originated at 2 different facilities and extended over 5 logarithmic decades of ose, are well describable by the empirical equation S sub D equals S sub O (S sub m - S sub 0) where S sub D equals percent compression set in air after absorption by the sample of dose D (ergs/gm)) SS ssuubb 00 ee qq uu
