The Engineering Validation and Engineering Design Activities (EVEDA) of the International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility (IFMIF) are in progress under the Broader Approach (BA) Agreement. As a part of this engineering design, we carried out thermo-structural analysis of the back plate in the IFMIF target. In this analysis, the target assembly of the integrated back plate option was modeled with the nuclear heating to simulate the IFMIF usual operation. The calculation parameters were thermal boundary conditions of a mechanical joint between the target assembly and the beam duct. The calculation results showed the influence of parameters on thermal stress was small. The maximum von Mises stresses occurred at the back plate center and those values, 204 - 218 MPa were lower than half of the yield strength of F82H (455 MPa). The maximum thermal deformations occurred at the same place and those values, about 0.3 mm will be important input parameter for the Li flow stability analysis.
