Abstract

About one thousands of small size specimens will be irradiated in the High Flux Test Module (HFTM) with a limited irradiation volume of 0.5 l in the International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility (IFMIF). It is necessary to verify that the experimental data of these small specimens mechanical characterization can be safely extrapolated to standard specimen data, enabling a sound dimensioning of DEMO reactor. The program of small specimen test technique (SSTT) in IFMIF/EVEDA (Engineering Validation and Engineering Design Activity) phase for fatigue, fracture toughness and crack growth measurement is summarized, and recent progress and some analysis of the experiments for small size specimens have been shown.
