Description

Several factors have renewed worldwide interest in advanced, high-efficiency coal power plants during the last decade. These factors include the abundance of coal and the need to maintain a viable coal option while reducing fuel costs, emissions, and waste from power plants. The key enabling technology that drives high efficiency power plants is the development of advanced materials and coatings with considerable increases in creep strength and corrosion resistance over traditional alloys. The papers presented in this proceedings volume reflect the latest research on topics such as materials for ultrasupercritical coal-fired boilers, boiler materials, steam turbine materials, life management, weld behavior, and microstructural effects in creep. Contents: Overview/key industry topics (6 papers) Boilers (17 papers) Turbines (10 papers) Creep/Life Management (8 papers) Welding (8 papers) Oxidation (5 papers)
