Mechanical properties on closure welding for JT-60SA cryostat

Shibama, Yusuke; Nakamura, Shigetoshi; Masaki, Kei; Sakasai, Akira

The cryostat, made of type 304 stainless steel, is required to fulfil the structural integrity and the vacuum tightness at room temperature, and this paper focuses on the fillet welding mechanical properties as a vacuum seal, especially tensile behavior and fatigue strength. Although the lid at the top is a first major part to be removed when the devices inside would be stated in faulted conditions, the closure process is expected to be low cost and simple, and examined with structural clamping and fillet welding as a vacuum seal since the cryostat is not an usual pressure vessel. This standard strength is designed as a 12 mm leg length and reduction of the welding deposition is surveyed with the other comparative specimens of two leg lengths (6 mm, 9 mm). As a result, the region linearly responded to the loading of the 9 mm specimen sufficiently envelops the standard design strength, and then sufficient fatigue strength is confirmed with the linear response limit load as an amplitude until 2000 cycles. Application of the fillet welding to the closure welding is discussed in this paper.
