|About this Conference
||18th International Conference on Environmental Degradation of Materials in Nuclear Power Systems -- Water Reactors
||08/13/2017 - 08/17/2017
||Portland, OR, USA
||The safe and efficient operation of nuclear plants is a necessity for long-term energy production. Materials technology is a key foundation upon which the nuclear technology of today prospers and the technology of tomorrow will succeed. Environmentally-induced materials degradation represents a significant fraction of materials related problems in today’s nuclear power plant operation. The purpose of this conference is to foster an exchange of ideas about such problems and their remedies in water-cooled nuclear power plants of today and the future.
