Study of irradiation assisted stress corrosion cracking (IASCC) is an important subject for the plant life assessment and extension of the light water reactors (LWRs). It is necessary that initiation mechanism of IASCC should be made clear under combined effect of irradiation, environment and stress in order to understand IASCC phenomena. Under the existing circumstance, Saturated Temperature Capsule (SATCAP) were fabricated for the irradiation test of IASCC studies in Japan Material Testing Reactor (JMTR). SATCAP is the irradiation rig to irradiate materials in high pressure water of controlled chemistry and temperature simulating Boiling water reactors (BWRs) core environment from the new water feelding system of out-of-pile. This report describes (1) investigation of technical problems for the design and fabrication of SATCAP, (2) the tests results of the problems and (3) fabrication and inspection of SATCAP.
