Product Description


From the reviews:

"An interesting work, well structured (3 parts, 15 chapters), with an important number of illustrations or graphics … . nomenclature, problems and separate bibliography at the end of each chapter allow to the reader to reach a straightforward understanding of the subject, part by part. … As conclusion, this book is very pleasant to read, well documented and can be seen as a very good introduction to the effects of irradiation on matter, or as a good references compilation for experimented readers." (Pauly Nicolas, Physicalia Magazine, Vol. 30 (1), 2008)

From the Back Cover

Radiation Materials Science teaches readers the fundamentals of the effects of radiation on metals and alloys. When energetic particles strike a solid, numerous processes occur that can change the physical and mechanical properties of the material. Metals and alloys represent an important class of materials that, by virtue of their use in nuclear reactor cores, are subject to intense radiation fields. Radiation causes metals and alloys to swell, distort, blister, harden, soften and deform. This textbook and reference covers the basics of particle-atom interaction for a range of particle types, the amount and spatial extent of the resulting radiation damage, the physical effects of irradiation and the changes in mechanical behavior of irradiated metals and alloys. Concepts are developed systematically and quantitatively, supported by examples, references for further reading and problems at the end of each chapter. Beyond addressing students enrolling for a materials sciences or nuclear engineering degree, the book will benefit professionals in laboratories, reactor manufacturers and specialists working in the utility industry

Better than the text we're using for the class Nov. 18 2011

I am using this as a recommended supplemental text for a class on Nuclear Materials. The actual class text is a manuscript in progress that is full of holes. This text does a very good job of filling the holes.

The book arrived very quickly and it was in great condition. I would use this service again. Price was also slightly below the bookstore.
