19th International Conference on Environmental Degradation of Materials in Nuclear Power Systems - Water Reactors, Boston, MA, USA,18-22 August 2019

The next generations of nuclear fusion reactors, including ITER and DEMO, will consider several different cooling systems for heat dissipation, power generation and tritium breeding. This includes the water-cooled lithium-lead blanket (WCLL) design, which bears significant similarities to the water-cooled circuit in a pressurised water fission reac…

30th Symposium on Fusion Technology (SOFT), Giardini Naxos, Messina, Sicily, 16-21 September 2018

The European DEMO design will potentially use single phase water cooling in various components that require protection against corrosion damage. Coolant conditions will be similar to fission PWRs but with additional considerations arising from the materials of choice (Eurofer, CuCrZr), 14 MeV neutron irradiation, the presence of tritium, and str…

30th Symposium on Fusion Technology (SOFT), Giardini Naxos, Messina, Sicily, 16-21 September 2018

The Chinese Fusion Engineering Test Reactor (CFETR) bridges the gap between ITER and a demonstration fusion power plant (DEMO). The primary objectives of CFETR are: demonstrate tritium self-sufficiency, ~1GW fusion power, operate in steady-state and have a duty cycle of 0.3-0.5 [1]. CFETR is in the pre-conceptual design phase and is currently en…
