This book is an eye-opening treatise on 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 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.

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

About the Author:

Professor Gary Was is the Walter J. Weber, Jr. Professor of Sustainable Energy, Environmental and Earth Systems Engineering and holds appointments in Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences, and Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan.  He has held positions as Director of the Michigan Memorial Phoenix Energy Institute, Associate Dean of the College of Engineering and Chair of the Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Sciences Department.  Professor Was’ research is focused on materials for advanced nuclear energy systems and radiation materials science, including environmental effects on materials, radiation effects, ion beam surface modification of materials and nuclear fuels. His current research includes development of structural materials for the SFR, behavior of fuel in the VHTR, fuel behavior modeling in LWRs, irradiation assisted stress corrosion cracking and irradiation-accelerated corrosion in water reactor environments.  He is a Fellow of the Materials Research Society, ASM International, NACE International and the American Nuclear Society.   Professor Was has published over 200 technical articles in referred, archival journals, presented over 300 conference papers, delivered 180 invited talks and seminars, and has published a graduate level textbook on Radiation Materials Science. Professor Was received the Presidential Young Investigator award from NSF,

the Champion H. Matthewson Award from TMS, the Outstanding and Special Achievement Awards by the Materials Science and Technology Division of the American Nuclear Society, the Henry Marion Howe Medal from ASM, and the Lee Hsun Award from the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
