22.74 Radiation Damage and Effects in Nuclear Materials
Studies the origins and effects of radiation damage in structural materials for nuclear applications. Radiation damage topics include formation of point defects, defect diffusion, defect reaction kinetics and accumulation, and differences in defect microstructures due to the type of radiation (ion, proton, neutron). Radiation effects topics include detrimental changes to mechanical properties, phase stability, corrosion properties, and differences in fission and fusion systems. Term project required.
22.74 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by M. Short.
Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 24-121.
