To clarify IFMIF target back-wall structures and materials with acceptable thermal-stress and deformation due to nuclear heating during the accelerator operation, thermal-stress analysis was done using a code ABAQUS and data of nuclear heating. Two types of back-wall were estimated. One is made of only 316L, and the other is made of 316L at its circumference and F82H a RAF steel at center. Effects of stress-mitigation structure with thickness 2-8 mm, and beam heat loads of 10-100% were estimated. As a result, thermal-stress in the latter back-wall is acceptable level less than 328 MPa for 316L and 455 MPa for F82H even under full heat load, if thickness of the stress-mitigation part is more than 5 mm. On the contrary, thermal-stress in the former is not acceptable. In preliminary tensile tests on dissimilar welding (316L-F82H) specimen, the fracture was occurred in base metal of 316L. Therefore, this welding is expected to be employed as the back-wall.
