Abstract

Due to the cyclic mode of operation of fusion devices of the INTOR/NET class, fatigue and crack propagation might be the life limiting phenomena. Crack growth under neutron irradiation is therefore one of the first priority tests of the coordinated European Fusion Technology Programme. However the equipment required is complex and design and development work is necessary before reliable in-pile machines can be used. The paper lists a number of abstracts from recent publications in the field and proposes guidelines for the design of future in-pile devices.
