To verify the failure mode and assess creep-fatigue damage, a thick cylinder test model made of Mod.9Cr-1Mo steel was subjected to 1,873 cycles of accelerated thermal transient loading using a large-scale sodium loop through which liquid sodium at 600 $$^{circ}$$C and 250 $$^{circ}$$C flowed repeatedly, with the period of each transient being 2 h and 1 h, respectively. After completion of the test, the test model was inspected using liquid penetrant testing. Observations using a scanning electron microscope and hardness testing were then performed to characterize creep-fatigue damage in the structural model subjected to cyclic thermal transient loading in a sodium environment. Finite element analysis were performed to evaluate the relationship between creep-fatigue damage and the observed crack conditions.
