Material issues in nuclear applications

Yalçınkaya, Tuncay
This report covers the book of abstracts of the 1st International Workshop on Physics Based Modeling of Material Properties and Experimental Observations. The workshop is organized in the context of European Commission’s Enlargement and Integration Action, by the Joint Research Centre in collaboration with the Middle East Technical University on 22nd -- 23rd October 2012 in Ankara. The abstracts of 7 keynote lectures and 19 technical presentations are included in the book. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the current state of the art of physics based modeling of materials and associated experimental techniques. Such approaches allow a better understanding of the degradation mechanisms and the link between the microstructure and material behavior which is necessary for the extrapolation of data beyond operational experience and for the assessment of component integrity subjected to harsh environment and long term operation.
