IFMIF test cell design issues

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility (IFMIF) project was started in 1994 under sponsorship of the International Energy Agency (IEA). This project, which is in its conceptual design phase, is aimed at fulfilling the need for a high-flux. high-fluence neutron irradiation facility for fusion materials research and development. Initial assessments of the materials testing needs have shown that the testing space provided in the high-flux region of the IFMIF Test Cell is adequate for development of a data base for the engineering design of a demonstration fusion power-producing-reactor (DEMO). Using the proposed set of miniaturized test specimens, compact test module ... continued below

Description

The International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility (IFMIF) project was started in 1994 under sponsorship of the International Energy Agency (IEA). This project, which is in its conceptual design phase, is aimed at fulfilling the need for a high-flux. high-fluence neutron irradiation facility for fusion materials research and development. Initial assessments of the materials testing needs have shown that the testing space provided in the high-flux region of the IFMIF Test Cell is adequate for development of a data base for the engineering design of a demonstration fusion power-producing-reactor (DEMO). Using the proposed set of miniaturized test specimens, compact test module configurations have been developed for several reference loadings. The test modules have been integrated into a test assembly that includes the coolant flow system for the test modules, instrumentation and control equipment, and a shield to minimize activation to ancillary areas of the IFMIF facility. These test assemblies are configured to facilitate installation, removal, and transport to hot cells using remote handling equipment.
