Abstract
Abstract The Experimental Breeder Reactor-II (EBR-II) was a 62.5 MWt–20 MWe sodium cooled fast reactor that was operated successfully for 30 years. Over its period of operation a wealth of fuels and materials information originated from EBR-II. Several missions were conducted in EBR-II, all of which yielded new and valuable additions to the world's knowledge base for nuclear materials. Some of the first pioneering experiments on irradiation effects in stainless steels were conducted in EBR-II. Later, practical manifestations of enhanced irradiation creep, swelling, and loss of ductility were experienced on EBR-II components. In addition, for a period of more tha...
