The AMES network and its reference laboratory
AMES is a well-established European network around the subject of irradiation embrittlement and its mitigation methods. After an initial phase of producing �State-of-the-Art� reports the main objective of carrying out common projects in the above mentioned field could be developed by detailing three projects of priority. The first of these is the validation of surveillance practice and mitigation methods, which had been split into eight Task Groups. Different projects from these Task Groups are running including modelling activities, others are being developed. The AMES Reference Laboratory has set its objectives and has participated in different projects. Some of them are complete; others are still ongoing. An irradiation facility (LYRA) was constructed and used for some of these projects. Currently, specimens for the Referee project are irradiated. Some activities on thermal ageing are also carried out.
