This paper describes the material strength standard of Modified 9Cr-1Mo (ASME Gr.91) steel in the design code for fast reactors of 2012 edition published by the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers. Modified 9Cr-1Mo is to be used for primary and secondary coolant circuits, including intermediate heat exchangers and steam generators for the Japan Sodium Cooled Fast Reactor (JSFR). Modified 9Cr-1Mo steel was developed in Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the United States. Application of Modified 9Cr-1Mo to JSFR needs the material strength standard. Therefore, the authors developed the material strength standard. The material strength standard involved allowable limits such as S0, Sm, Su, Sy, SR and St and so on, environment effects such as sodium effects. In addition, material characteristic equations (Creep rupture equation, creep strain equation and equation of best fit curve for low-cycle fatigue life and so on) necessary for the allowable limits were involved. This paper describes the contents of the material strength standard.
