The next generation of nuclear fission and fusion reactors depends upon the development of high performance structural materials. Silicon carbide (SiC) is being considered for a variety of nuclear reactor components because it possesses outstanding physical and chemical properties, including: high thermal conductivity, high temperature stability, chemical inertness, extreme hardness and small neutron capture cross-section. However, when exposed to energetic particles, SiC is observed to experience various radiation induced defects such as: vacancy clusters, dislocation loops and network dislocations at

The Conference on Emerging Priorities in Ceramic Engineer ing and Science, held at Alfred University, November 4-6, 1974, was arranged to provide a basis for reassessment of professional goals, procedures and outlook. American priorities among comfort, safety, national prestige, security, convenience and environmental quality are significantly different from those of a dozen years ago. Economic factors have shifted, as exempli fied by scarcities in energy, mate rials and world food supplies. At the same time, demands for safer products, healthier work
