Abstract

In leading towards the mechanical engineering aspects of JET, this paper provides an introduction to fusion energy: the fusion principles, requirements to achieve fusion, magnetic confinement and tokamaks, followed by an introduction to JET: its objectives, the machine's component parts (vacuum vessel, toroidal field magnet, mechanical structure, poloidal field coils and transformer iron circuit. A third chapter gives a survey of the assembly and commissioning of JET, its first year of operation, and the future experimental programme. A last chapter provides some insight into mechanical problems in the JET machine, such as disruptions, positional instabilities, and vertical instabilities.
