EVEDA (Engineering Validation and Engineering Design Activity) Lithium Test Loop (ELTL) with the world's highest flow rate of 3000 L/min was succeeded in generating a 100 mm wide and 25 mm thick free-surface lithium flow steadily under the IFMIF operation condition of a high-speed of 15 m/s at 523 K in a vacuum of 0.001 Pa, on 5th February 2014, by the design development and optimization of operation condition. This result will greatly advance the development of an accelerator-based neutron source to high energy and high-density as an important key technology for development of fusion reactor materials. Recent related engineering validation and engineering design of lithium facility was also evaluated and the main contents were summarized.
