Abstract : The report includes the following: (1) status of reactor radiation damage surveillance programs in several power reactors, (2) the effect of neutron spectra on properties of steels exposed in light water, heavy water, and graphite-moderated reactors, (3) the alleviation of neutron embrittlement of A350-LF1 steel by thermal annealing treatment, and (4) through-thickness Charpy V-notch ductility characteristics of a 4-in. A302-B plate.
