Advances in Materials Technology for Fossil Power Plants: Proceedings from the Fifth International Conference, October 3-5, 2007, Marco Island, Florida, USA
An October 2007 conference allowed scientists and engineers from around the world to exchange information on advanced, high-efficiency coal power plants. Papers from the conference are presented here, in sections on boilers, turbines, oxidation, creep/life management, welding, and oxy fuel. Some specific topics include materials solutions for advanced steam power plants, consideration of weld behavior in the design of high temperature components, nickel alloys for high efficiency fossil power plants, and material development and mechanical integrity analysis for advanced steam turbines. Other subjects are ferritic and austenitic grades for a new generation of steam power plants, the impact of steam-side oxidation on boiler heat-exchanger tube design, and oxy-combustion technology for utility coal-fired boilers.
