THE EFFECTS OF MATERIALS PROPERTIES AND OF OPERATING CONDITIONS VARIATIONS ON THE FIRST WALL LIFETIME OF INTOR AND DEMO FUSION REACTORS
A parametric study of the influence of structural material properties and of operating conditions on the lifetime of the first wall (FW) has been performed for the next two steps in the development of fusion energy, the experimental reactor NET/INTOR and the demonstration reactor DEMO. The computer program SMILE**1, developed as part of a broader experimental activity concentrating on the first wall design problem of the NET/INTOR reactor, was used for the analysis. The purpose of this program is: - to assess the behaviour of the candidate structural materials; - to identify the limiting failure mechanism and the critical value of the property involved; - to provide a reference procedure for evaluating the performance of different materials and the effects of the different operating conditions.
