A computer model has been developed to simulate the processes leading to void growth during the post-irradiation annealing of low-temperature neutron irradiated molybdenum. The results appear to confirm that the model of void formation previously proposed could lead to the experimentally determined high efficiency of vacancy retention and give swelling rates one or two orders greate r than that possible in high temperature void formation. Some of the important parameters are
identified and discussed. There appeared to be no reason why the irradiation/annealing mode of void formation should not apply to metals other than molybdenum.
