Strain controlled fatigue tests have been performed in torsion on 20% cold worked type 316L stainless steel specimens during an irradiation with 19 MeV deuterons. A hold time was imposed at the minimum strain value in the loading cycle. The irradiation creep induced stress relaxation led to the built up of a mean stress. The number of cycles to failure may be significantly reduced in comparison to analogous continuous cycling tests under thermal conditions.
