ABSTRACT
Issues concerning chamber technology testing program in
NIF involoving: criteria for evaluation/prioritization of
experiments, engineering scaling requirements for test article
design and material selection and R&D plan prior to NIF
testing were addressed in this paper. In order to maximize the
benefits of testing program in NIF, the testing in NI]? should
provide the experimental data relevant to DEMO design
choice or to DEMO design predictive capability by utilizing
engineering scaling test article designs. Test plans were
developed for 2 promising chamber design concepts. Early
testing in non-fusionhon-ignition prior to testing in ignition
facility serves a critical role in chamber R&D test plans in
order to reduce the risks and costs of the more complex
experiments in NIF.
