ARIES ACT-1 is a conceptual design for a commercial tokamak with aggressive physics and engineering. In the spirit of advanced engineering, the vacuum vessel design employed several novel concepts. It eliminates the use of water cooling in order to allow higher temperature operation and reduce the tritium inventory. It employs a low activation bainitic steel that eliminates the need for post-weld heat treatment. It includes sufficient volume to accommodate a full loss of coolant accident. Finally, it employs a novel mechanical design in order to withstand the operating stresses during normal operation, anticipated transients, and disruptions. In this paper, we present the most recent design for this component, update the stress analysis confirming the suitability of the design, and present results for disruption forces due to a plasma quench.
