Abstract: Radiation-induced changes in microstructures often lead to significant changes in mechanical properties of alloys used in the construction of nuclear reactors. It is desirable to test small specimens to make efficient use of the small volumes available in test and commercial reactor cores and also because small specimens are less affected by the sometimes steep flux gradients experienced in reactor cores and the sometimes large temperature gradients developed in the specimens from gamma heating.
