Tritium behaviour in a self cooled liquid breeder blanket, using the permeation of tritium from the blanket through the first wall into the torus chamber as tritium refuelling method, has been investigated. Tritium recycling and desorption, permeation to the shield and inventory under different conditions at the inner first wall surface and the outer blanket surface have been calculated by a numerical code. The development of these properties as a function of time is discussed. The calculations have been performed for a self cooled blanket using V as a first wall material and Pb-17Li as a liquid breeder material.
