This paper focuses on the in-pile
option, in particular the possibility that a UCN source could be hosted in a through-going tube that penetrates the monolith shielding as well as the outer and inner reflectors.
The 42 papers in this proceedings cover basic metallurgy, fabrication and mechanical properties, hydriding--hydrogen effect, corrosion--oxide layer characterization, in-pile
behavior, creep and deformation, and failure mechanisms and transients.
It's no fun having to clear stacks of papers before you can have a meal, or be confronted by the ever-growing in-pile
in the corner of your living room as you watch TV.
