The dissipation of the decay heat of structural materials after a major LOCA is one of the key issues in the passive safety of future fusion reactors. Studies have been performed in the frame of the ITER-CDA, DEMO and SEAFP programmes with the scope to predict the post-accidental temperature transient in the envelope conditions of instantaneous, total and permanent loss of every form of active cooling. An overview of these studies is presented including the latest results on the European SEAFP reference and alternative power reactor.
