Fusion Materials / Eighteenth Topical Meeting on the Technology of Fusion Energy (Part 1)
The purpose of the High Flux Test Module (HFTM) in International Fusion Material Irradiation Facility (IFMIF) is to irradiate material specimens to a very high fluence (DEMO relevant ones) in a very few years. In IFMIF-EVEDA which is selected as one of the broader approach activities, the reference solution for the assemblies is a vertical set-up (EU); an alternative horizontal solution, H-HFTM (Japan), which could become very useful for very high temperature tests, is also part of this work. This paper presents the overview of H-HFTM and reports on the recent Japan activities for H-HFTM in the IFMIF-EVEDA framework.
