Accelerator Driven Subcritical (ADS) system has been recognized to be the most promising technology for safely treating the nuclear wastes by now. This system is composed of three parts, which are accelerator, spallation target and reactor. The biggest challenge exists in the structural material for the spallation target is to possess not only good heat-resistance and radiation resistance but also a resistance to liquid metal corrosion. A novel martensitic heat-resistant steel, SIMP steel, has been developed against this challenge. By negotiating the effects of the contents of those important elements such as C, Cr and Si in the 9-12%Cr martensitic heat-resistant steel, an optimized chemical composition was obtained for SIMP steel and a good performance balance was reached. The test results conducted on one-ton and five-tons scales SIMP steels showed that this novel steel is much potential as a candidate structural material for the spallation target in ADS system.
