An engineering scaling process is applied to the
solid breeder ITER TBM designs in accordance with
the testing objectives of validating the design tools
and the database, and evaluating blanket
performance under prototypical operating
conditions. The goal of scaling is to ensure that
changes in structural response and performance
caused by changes in size and operating conditions
do not reduce the usefulness of the tests. Initially,
constitutive equations are applied to lay out the basic
operating and design parameters that dominate
blanket phenomena. The suitability of these
similarity criteria for the TBM design is then
confirmed by comparing finite element predictions of
