Recent progress of small specimen test technique and the engineering design and engineering validation tests of high flux test module (HFTM) for the IFMIF test cell is mainly summarized and evaluated in the IFMIF/EVEDA (Engineering validation and engineering design activities) projects under Broader Approach Agreement between EURATOM and Japan. Effects of specimen size on mechanical properties such as impact properties and ductile-to-brittle transition temperature are known to occur in ferritic/martensitic steels, and some parts of them have been prepared in the guideline and standard of mechanical tests by ASTM-international and ISO. However, our research of ferritic/martensitic steel F82H showed that it did not match with our data, i.e., master curve method for fracture in ductile-to-brittle transition behaviour of F82H steel. Accordingly, we need to modify and develop these standards for the tests including small size specimens of fusion materials in IFMIF. Also, some designs were prepared in the design of HFTM.
