Reduced activation ferritic/martensitic steels are recognized as the primary candidate structural materials for fusion blanket systems. Welding is an inevitable for breeding blanket for pressure tightness and radioisotope confinement. Especially, TIG welding was chosen for sealing because it has the largest gap allowance compared to the other welding methods, and its properties are controllable by feed wire and welding conditions. In this study, the low cycle fatigue test using two-type gage such as extensometer and strain gage was applied to the TIG welded joint of F82H steel, for evaluating fatigue damage accumulation behavior of the HAZs. As the result, the over-tempered HAZ have shown a higher fatigue damage accumulation compared with other materials at all the testing conditions.
