Material damage mechanisms in power plants
Review and mitigation

This training will provide an overview of the most common damage mechanisms observed in a power plant. After understanding the different mechanisms, we will go through the different techniques (NDT) to monitor them and the possibility to perform some destructive analysis in order to determine the failure mechanism. The results of those test are required and used to determine the remaining lifetime of an installation. At the end of the session, the participants are facing some practical cases that they have to investigate to determine the failure mechanism.

  • Introduction.
  • Integrity assessment and failure analysis: brief explanation of damage mechanisms and example.
  • Overview of available non-destructive and destructive testing.
  • Remaining life determination: application of boiler life management.
  • Become an expert: Practical cases to solve to determine the failure mechanisms.

Introduction for new employee in power plant/industry or maintenance personnel.

Two days

Prereq: Need to have notion of how a power plant is working and notion of material and/or chemistry.
