In the JSFR design, a single rotating plug and an upper inner structure (UIS) with a vertically penetrating slit are proposed, so that the fuel handling machine (FHM) can access any subassembly by horizontal movement of the FHM arm in the slit space. As a result of a full-scale mockup test, excellent performance in normal operation has been shown. In this study, from the viewpoint of achieving reliability of the pantograph type FHM, behavior of the FHM mockup have been investigated under abnormal conditions.
