Abstract

A new first wall concept with radiatively cooled protection tiles is presented. It is characterized by small tiles attached in a way which allows unrestricted thermal expansion of the tiles and easy, remotely operated tile replacement. The large ratio of radiation-cooled to plasma-facing surfaces and the short heat flow paths to the heat sink results in relatively low tile temperatures. Calculated temperature distributions for the tiles and temperature and stress distributions for the underlying first wall structure are reported for steady-state and transient conditions.
