Abstract

Activation and equivalent dose rate are calculated for structural steels Fe-9Cr-W-V-Mn and EK-181 irradiated with neutrons of the BN-600 reactor. Nuclear transmutation in these steels is estimated and phase stability of steels irradiated in neutron fluxes with different fluences is predicted on the basis of calculated chromium-nickel equivalents and the Scheffler phase diagram modified by Schneider.
