For the further pursuit of the steady-state advanced tokamak research, the ferritic insertion was proposed to reduce the toroidal field (TF) ripple. The reduction of energetic ion loss due to the TF ripple reduction brings: (1) the enhancement of the heating and current drive "effective" efficiency, (2) the extended pulse length and the improved efficiency of RF injection due to the reduced heat flux on antennas and improved coupling between antennas and a plasma, (3) the availability of a wall stabilization without losing heating power, and (4) the possibility of an enhanced availability of the rotation control to improve the MHD stability and transport. The design work of ferritic inserts was carried out aiming at an effective, machine-safe, and short-term installation. Here, the design work for ferritic inserts is described from the viewpoint of the behavior of energetic ions. The confinement of energetic ions and the absence of the unfavorable heat flux on the first wall was assessed by using the Fully three Dimensional magnetic field OFMC code, which was developed for a ferrite insert program in JFT-2M. In the final design, the confinement of energetic ions is improved by about 1.3 times in a large volume plasma with Bt0 = 1.9T.
