Plant Life Management: Midterm status of a R&D project

Jussi Solin (Editor)

    Research output: Book/ReportBook (editor)Scientificpeer-review


    Experimental and analytical research is being carried out in an industrially oriented project cluster dealing with estimating and managing lifetime of critical structures and components in energy industry. The research topics include systematic component lifetime management, lifetime of pressure bearing components, piping vibrations and integrity management, management of materials ageing, non-destructive inspection, water chemistry, oxide films and their role in service reliability and build-up of activity levels, stress corrosion cracking in Inconel welds, irradiation assisted stress corrosion cracking of core components, development of crack growth testing methods as well as the mechanisms of environmentally assisted cracking. This Symposium is a compilation of selected papers describing the midterm status of the projects after two years of research.
