At Oarai Research and development center, Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA), the plan of repairing and refurbishing Japan Materials Testing Reactor (JMTR) has progressed in order to restart JMTR operation in the fiscal 2011. By using Oarari Shroud Facility and fuel irradiation facility with the He-3 gas control system for power lamping test using boiling water capsules. By using saturated temperature capsules and the water environment control system, the material irradiation tests under the water chemistry condition of LWL will be carried out to clarify the mechanism of IASCC. The detailed design for renewal or remodeling was carried out based on the new design condition in order to be correspondent to the irradiation test plan after restart JMTR operation. Stress calculation and evaluation were carried out by fem piping analysis code SAP and structure analysis code ABAQUS. It was proven by the analysis that these facilities maintain the structural integrity under earthquake condition.
