Description

Creep damage is a leading cause of failure in pressure vessel steels exposed to high temperature and stress. The development of a nondestructive inspection method for visualizing and detecting the level of creep damage throughout the service life of these pressure vessels is critical to safe power plant operation. If the damage is detected at an early stage and monitored throughout its progress, replacement costs and downtime can be reduced, and catastrophic failures can be avoided.
