A steady-state thermo-hydraulic analysis of SB was done to get pressure drop and heat transfer coefficient in the cooling pipes, then a transient thermal analysis was performed to get temperature field of the SB with time in Inductive plasma operational scenario. Finally static structural analysis of the SB based on the temperature fields obtained with the transient analyses at specific time points were done to get the stress and strain distribution of the SB. The numerical analysis results were investigated by rules from ITER System Design Criteria for In-vessel Component to further verify the design. The final results of analyses indicate that the design of the SB meets with the ITER design requirements.
