Abstract:

The research program of the NRL Metallurgy Division, Reactor Materials Branch, involves a broad study of the effects of nuclear radiation upon materials. The report covering research for the period 1 February - 30 April 1973, includes The effect of hold time on fatigue crack propagation in 20 cold worked stainless steel the effect of implanted helium on fatigue behavior of TZM alloy radiation enhanced metastability in a high strength structural alloy, The AEC-CE-NRL Cooperative program on A533-B reactor vessel steel The transition temperature increase for the SM-1A pressure vessel at reactor shutdown J-integral characterization of the SM-1A reactor pressure vessel steels The effect of water vapor on the fatigue strength of irradiated Type 348 stainless steel The effect of beam scanning on void formation in nickel-ion bombarded nickel.
