  3. 3. Radiation-Induced Damage Processes in Nuclear Reactor Environments

    Author : Elin Toijer; Pär Olsson; Julie Tucker; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Fysik; Physics;

    Abstract : It is essential that the materials used in nuclear reactor applications maintain their structural integrity. However, consequences of the strong radiation field in the reactor core include radiolysis of the water surrounding the materials, as well as direct defect generation in the material itself.

    Abstract : Background: The main objective of this study was to investigate older people’s physical activity, their participation in various life situations, and their perceptions of their own health. This included an exploration of potential influences of urban versus rural residency on these outcomes, an evaluation of the measurement properties of a balance confidence scale, and an examination of the proposed usefulness of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) as a conceptual framework to facilitate analysis and understanding of selected outcomes.
