Title: Relationship between swelling and the shear modulus of irradiated metal

Abstract

In three alloy systems, AISI 316, the Ni-Al binary system, and the Fe-Cr-Ni ternary system, a relationship exists between the shear modulus of the unirradiated alloys and the resultant swelling observed. An alloying addition which reduces the shear modulus will subsequently reduce the irradiation-induced swelling in a solid solution hardened alloy system. The reduction in swelling is thought to be associated with the void nucleation phase of the swelling phenomenon. Thus, relative high temperature swelling behavior of the solid solution hardened alloys can be described with reasonable certainty from room temperature shear modulus measurement.
