Abstract

Since 1994 the International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility is under development. Up till now only design activities have been performed aimed at providing a reference design, evaluating remaining design uncertainty, reducing the costs and the key technology risk factors to reach the specified requirements with sufficient availability and reliability. From the beginning ENEA is engaged in the design of all the systems. In particular for the Lithium Target System, its activities are mainly focused on risk analysis, transient analysis, thermal-hydraulics and stability of lithium jet. This paper deals with the analysis of the behaviour of the Lithium Target System under normal and incident conditions, performed with a version of the RELAP5/Mod3.2 code modified to allow for specific features of the system itself (Lithium and organic oil as cooling fluids).
