Abstract

A reference low-activation vanadium alloy NIFS-HEAT-2 was neutron-irradiated at 450° C and below, in order to estimate the resistance to low temperature irradiation. DBTT of NIFS-HEAT-2 was-85°C after irradiation up to 8.5 dpa at 450° C in Na atmosphere, while DBTT was below-196°C for 3.7 dpa at 430°C in Li atmosphere. On the other hand, DBTT was lower than about-90° C for the irradiation up to 0.1~1 dpa at 60, 290 and 400° C. The DBTT shift was increased with increasing hardness after neutron irradiation for limited irradiation conditions. The mechanisms of DBTT shift and irradiation hardening at low temperature was discussed.
