Research of materials changes occurring in advanced steels used for construction and reconstruction of pipelines in power and chemical plants
|Co-investigator||prof. Ing. Václav Sklenička, DrSc.|
|Number of Project||TA02010260|
|Agency||Technologická agentura České republiky|
|Duration||2011-12-31 - 2015-12-30|
|The project deals with the research of processes occurring in the steam pipe-line systems fabricated of advanced creep-resistant steels during the operation considering the influence of processing procedures and depending on a localization in the wall thickness of steam pipes.|
The main aim of the project is to determine the materials properties of steam pipes made of creep – resistant steels and on applied processing technology, especially in terms of the effect of materials changes on the resulting lifetime. Knowledge of the processes responsible for changes in material properties of steam pipelines is crucial for the safe operation of the structural components throughout their designed lifetime.
