EFFECTS OF SERVICE AGE ON THERMAL-MECHANICAL FATIGUE OF A 2.25CR-1MO STEAM HEADER [Poster]
Michael ZimnochGrand Ballroom D
Understanding the remaining life of a component is critical to maintaining safe operation and is necessary for budgeting repairs. This paper uses Finite Element Analysis to predict the performance of a steam header under realistic loading scenarios, comparing the difference between life expectancies of service-aged material to that of virgin material.
