The experimental activity in support of the first wall design of the fusion reactor ITER/NET is described. The activity was aimed at verifying the thermal fatigue behaviour of the component and the in-service lifetime predictive capability of the present nuclear design codes. Details of the thermal fatigue test facility are given and the validation of first wall models and prototypes is discussed.
