A tritium release model has been developed by the present authors. The tritium release curves estimated by this tritium model give good agreement with experimental curves for Li4SiO4, Li2TiO3, Li2ZrO3 or LiAlO2 under various purge gas conditions in our out-of-pile bred tritium release.

The characteristics of tritium release behavior from various solid breeder materials carried out by us and in EXOTIC experiments at Petten are discussed in this study.
