Eurofer97 steel is a primary structural material for the plasma facing-components of future fusion reactors. Laser welding is a promising technique that can overcome the challenges of remote handling and maintenance. However, the interaction of the induced residual stress distribution with the heterogeneous microstructure may degrade the mechanical…


Precipitation hardened Copper-Chromium-Zirconium (CuCrZr) alloy is a prime candidate for divertor components in future European DEMOnstration fusion reactors. To develop the DEMO Design Criteria for In-vessel Components (DDC-IC), the failure criterion of CuCrZr needs to be investigated. Hence, the effects of stress triaxiality and loading…

The current paper reports the work of the EUROfusion Material Database and Handbook group within the MAT-EDDI (Materials – Engineering Data and Design Integration) subproject of the EUROfusion consortium. A special emphasis is put on the building of the EUROfusion RAFM steel database accounting around 3000 raw materials data records. A dat…
