EVEDA Lithium Test Loop (ELTL) has been designed and constructed, has operated a liquid lithium flow test facility with the world's highest flow rate and has succeeded in generating a 100-mm-wide and 25-mmthick free-surface lithium flow along a concave back plate steadily at a high speed of 20 m/s at 300°C for the first time in the world. This result will greatly advance the development of an accelerator-based neutron source to high energy and high density, one of the key objectives of the fusion reactor materials development under the BA (Broader Approach) Activities. Recent related engineering validation and engineering design of the lithium facility has been evaluated.
