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…

14th International Symposium on Fusion Nuclear Technology (ISFNT-14) Budapest,Hungary, 22-27 September 2019

The development of a specific materials database and handbook, for engineering design of in-vessel components of EU-DEMO, is an essential requirement for assessing the structural integrity by design. For key in-vessel materials, including EURFOER97, CuCrZr, Tungsten and dielectric and optical materials, this development has been ongoing now within …

2nd International Conference on Nuclear Power Plants: Structures, Risk and Decommissioning (NUPP), Croydon, UK, 11-12 June 2018

There is currently a European collaboration that is working towards developing a Demonstration Fusion Reactor (European DEMO). This project is currently defining the high level plant architecture of a DEMO reactor, whilst developing conceptual design solutions for technically challenging systems. One such area of development is the design of Pla…

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

This paper addresses the EUROfusion DEMO materials research program and highlights the characterization of the in-vessel baseline materials EUROFER97, CuCrZr and tungsten as well as advanced structural and high heat flux materials developed for risk mitigation. In support of engineering design activities the focus primarily is to assemble a data ba…
