Length: 2 days
Design for elevated and high temperature service requires specific measures for materials to maintain its integrity over long service periods. This two-day MasterClass provides insight into important aspects of performance of materials and its relation to design and residual life assessments of components. Presented in two parts, the class will address two main topics, which include "Structural Materials and Damage in Elevated and High Temperature Applications" on day one, and "Design and Lifetime Assessments of Components Exposed to High Temperatures" on day two.
Materials and material qualities, which can be used at higher temperatures is discussed in detail, as well as damage development under creep and fatigue loading (crack initiation and crack propagation). Consideration of high temperature design rules and code related aspects of high temperature design will be discussed with practical examples.
Upon completion, attendees will be able to
- Use high temperature materials data for design (time dependent allowable stresses)
- Identify damage occurring at elevated and high temperatures
- Assess damage evolution under creep, fatigue and its interactions
- Design for high temperature service and creep-fatigue interactions
Who Should Attend
This MasterClass is an essential resource for design engineers, materials engineers, fabrication, installation and construction engineers, consultants and authorities for boiler, piping, turbomachinery, and advanced nuclear plants. The course addresses individuals with intermediate knowledge level on materials and strength of materials being interested in a general understanding of high temperature materials properties and design for high temperature service.
This MasterClass is structured on the assumption that participants have a basic understanding of structural materials, strength of metals and alloys, classification of loads and determination of stresses, and stress allowables.
