Physical and thermal/mechanical interaction with plasma is considered to be the most limiting phenomenon for the first wall lifetime of the next generation tokamak fusion reactors. This paper describes the thermal fatigue test programme on NET/ITER FW components. The lifetime predictions performed according to ASME and RCC-MR codes are discussed on the basis of the numerical evaluation and of the experimental results.
