Corrosion and tensile samples of the EUROFER 97 steel were exposed to Pb-17Li in the LIFUS II loop at 480 °C. The specimens were extracted after 1500, 3000 and 4500 h exposure. After extraction, weight change measurements and metallurgical analysis were performed on the corrosion specimens, while tensile tests were performed at 480 °C. The results showed that EUROFER 97 underwent uniform corrosion and the mechanical properties seem to be unaffected or only slightly affected by the liquid metal. In this paper, the results are reported and discussed also with reference to previous similar work. © 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
