Title: High post-irradiation ductility thermomechanical treatment for precipitation strengthened austenitic alloys

Abstract

A method for improving the post-irradiation ductility is described which prises a solution heat treatment following which the materials are cold worked. They are included to demonstrate the beneficial effect of this treatment on the swelling resistance and the ductility of these austenitic precipitation hardenable alloys.
