22.74 Radiation Damage and Effects in Nuclear Materials


Class Info

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. Students taking graduate version complete additional assignments.

This class has 3.21, and 22.14 as prerequisites.

22.74 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Fall semester, and will be instructed by M. Short and B. Yildiz.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
