Special attention is given rides, boron-based dispersion materials, and boron to radiation resistance of boron carbide. Chapters 3 steels and alloys, i.e., all boron-containing materials (pp. 177 192), 4 (pp. 193 211), and 5 (pp. 212 219) used in manufacturing of atomic reactors. Among concern other boron-containing compositions, namely, these materials, the most widely used in the world boron steels, metal borides, and boron-containing dis- practice of reactor engineering is boron carbide with persion absorbers. Chapter 6 (pp. 220 281) describes different degrees of enrichment in B. Also, some the major designs of control facilities manufactured other B-containing materials are used as neutron from the above-mentioned materials and applied in absorbers, namely, boron steels and alloys and boric Russian and foreign atomic reactor engineering.
