Studies of solute precipitation and precipitate phase stability in nuclear structural materials under concurrent irradiation and heat often lead to contradictory results due to the complex nature of the phenomena which is far from well understood. Here, we present a comprehensive atomistically based continuum model for the copper precipitation and re-dissolution kinetics in an ion irradiated and thermally annealed Fe-0.78 at. % Cu alloy. Our model incorporates thermal and irradiation enhanced… CONTINUE READING
