In the context of the themes depicted in the Research Themes page, research into the long term operation (LTO) of Gen II/III reactor systems extends to materials ageing phenomena and the EMAR knowledge base gives attention to synthesizing the outputs from the corresponding Euratom projects.

Within the first materials ageing mechanisms selected for the knowledge base, Euratom research results from FP4 to FP7 projects on irradiation embrittlement, mechanical fatigue, thermal fatigue and intergranular stress corrosion cracking (IGSCC) have been taken into consideration.
