The major components of the test cell are the three test modules, the shield plugs and the test cell covers. The existing drawings of the IFMIF test cell and the internals were put together to have a common basis for discussion. The high-flux-test-module was redesigned. The rigs were designed with a flat plate geometry. They are equipped with an electric heater system, with which the temperatures in the specimens stack can be kept at temperature levels between 250 and 650 °C within a tolerance of 30 °C. The temperature level of each rig can be adjusted independently. First result of the optimization of the medium-flux-test-module are also described. © 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
