... of the plastic or remove degradation products from the surface. Depending on the size of the droplets and the speed, liquid water can also lead to erosion and even impact damage, which can also occur with hail. Solar Radiation Solar radiation in the presence of atmospheric oxygen can be considered...

... of suggested mechanism by which a strength increase due to irradiation causes an upward shift in the DBTT. Source: Ref 21 Although swelling and the other aspects of radiation damage do not play a role in light-water power reactors, irradiation embrittlement has been a major concern. Low-alloy pressure...

..., and radiation damage. Production of well-diffracting large crystals is the most fundamental problem in MX. Quite often, microcrystals of less than a few micrometers in size are produced, and they are not suitable for regular-sized x-ray beams, for example, 50 to 200 μm. Many MX beamlines have microfocusing...

... nonlinearity parameter (β/β 0 ) as a function of aging time of 9% Cr steel. Source: Ref 37 The acoustic nonlinearity parameter (β) is used to track radiation damage due to a complicated evolution of precipitates and dislocations. Matlack et al. ( Ref 44 ) examined reactor pressure-vessel steel Charpy...
