This paper describes the tensile test results of martensitic steels EUROFER 97 and T91 after exposure to flowing Pb-17Li and Pb-55.5Bi alloy, respectively. The corrosion tests were performed in LIFUS II loop (Pb-17Li) and LECOR loop (Pb-55.5Bi) located in the ENEA Brasimone Center. Tensile test were carried in SYNTECH test machine under Ar atmosphere with an extension rate of 2 mm/min, and test temperature for EUROFER and T91 steels were at 480 and 400°C respectively. The exposure of EUROFER steel to the liquid Pb-17Li did not affect its mechanical properties, while the ductility of T91 steel was deteriorated after exposed to flowing liquid Pb-55.5Bi. © 2004 Elsevier B.V.
