The sixth of a series of conferences dedicated to research on materials examined a variety of different topics, including the problem of damage caused by neutronic radiation and materials for components subjected to high thermal flow. The criteria applied to the selection of materials for the ITER reactor were discussed, as well as other topics such as the effects of radiation on beryllium, research on materials for fusion reactors, the importance of compounds, the effects of plasma disruptions on structural materials, the microstructural alterations of metals subjected to radiation, the phenomenon of crack corrosion in austenitic steels, and the effect of neutronic radiation on the permeability and solubility of hydrogen in austenitic steels.
