Beryllium metal is used as a neutron reflector in the JMTR. JMTR is scheduled to restart on FY2012. Furthermore, the study of material to improve lifetime of beryllium frame is being conducted. In this study, the corrosion behavior of beryllium metal has been investigated under JMTR reactor-water-simulated condition. Beryllium metal samples for this study are S-200F, S-65H and I-220H, and were prepared by Vacuum Hot Pressing (VHP) and Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP). The corrosion test changed corrosion time, and was examined under pure water at 50$$^{circ}$$C. After the corrosion test, X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) and X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) were examined as a surface analysis of beryllium metal, and electrical conductivity and impurity measurement were examined as a water analysis. As a result, I-220H indicated the highest corrosion resistance of three beryllium metal samples.
