A theoretical study of creep deformation mechanisms of Type 316H stainless steel at elevated temperatures

Abstract:

The currently operating Generation II Advanced Gas-Cooled Reactors (AGR) in the nuclear power stations in the UK, mainly built in the 1960s and 1970s, are approaching their designed life. Besides the development of the new generation of reactors, the government is also seeking to extend the life of some AGRs. Creep and failure properties of Type 316H austenitic stainless steels used in some components of AGR at elevated temperature are under investigation in EDF Energy Ltd. However, the cu...
