Irradiation assisted stress corrosion cracking (IASCC) caused by simultaneous effects of neutron irradiation and high temperature water environments has been pointed out as one of the major concerns of in-core structural materials not only for the light water reactors (LWRs) but also for the water-cooled fusion reactor. It is necessary to evaluate precisely stress condition under irradiation environment, because stress is one of key factors on IASCC. Stress relaxation of tensile type specimens under fast neutron irradiation at 288$$^{circ}$$C has been studied for type 316L stainless steel in Japan Materials Testing Reactor (JMTR). This paper describes the in-pile and out-of-pile stress-relaxation test results of tensile type specimens for type 316L stainless steel as compared with the literature data by Foster, which were mainly obtained by bent beam specimens. Moreover these experimental results were compared with the analytical ones by using Nakagawa's model.
