These proceedings of an October 2001 meeting provide an overview of research on the improvement of material properties for high- temperature, gas-cooled reactor (HTGR) applications, in-core monitoring methods and properties of irradiated graphite, and HTGR fuel fabrication and performance. Specific topics include improvement in ductility of refractory metals by neutron irradiation, development of in-core test capabilities for material characterization, advanced graphite oxidation models, evidence of dramatic fission product release from irradiated nuclear ceramics, and an analysis of irradiation creep in nuclear graphites. There is no subject index. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
