The effects of fast neutron irradiation on tensile and transient burst properties of advanced ferritic/martensitic steel claddings were investigated. Specimens were irradiated in the experimental fast reactor JOYO using the material irradiation rig at temperatures between 773 and 1013 K to fast neutron doses ranging from 11 to 102 dpa. The post-irradiation tensile and temperature-transient-to-burst tests were carried out. The results of mechanical tests showed that there was no significant degradation in tensile and transient burst strengths after neutron irradiation below 873 K. This was attributed to grain boundary strengthening caused by precipitates that preferentially formed on prior-austenite grain boundaries. Both strengths at neutron irradiation above about 903 K up to 102 dpa decreased due to recovery of lath martensite structures and recrystallization.
