THERMAL EFFECTS IN RADIATION DAMAGE EXPERIMENTS,
PARKE MATHEMATICAL LABS INC CARLISLE MASS
A rather rigorous calculation of the one-dimensional steady state temperature distribution in a radiation damage test strip is described. The analysis includes the temperature dependence and specimen dependence of the thermal conductivity, as well as the effect of radiation damage on the thermal conductivity. The thermal calculations are used to determine the electrical resistance of the sample during the irradiation, and various uses for such calculations in interpreting experimental data are discussed. Numerical illustrations are carried out for a platinum sample. Author
