Free Webinar - WELDLIFE - avoidance of Type IV failure in P91 & P92 Steels


Webinar Outline

'Type IV' in-service creep cracking at weld heat affected zones in leading power plant steels, such as P91 and P92, has long been considered a costly but unavoidable life-limiting problem.
However, as the project outline shows, new industrial and collaborative research indicates that the life of welded components can be improved by a factor of about 2 to 3 times, by measures including (1) improved heat treatment and (2) altered welding processes, which will slow down or prevent 'Type IV' cracking. This should result in tremendous benefits for steel producers, plant manufacturers, plant operators and welding companies alike.
This webinar will present the preliminary findings from this exciting recent research and will discuss a proposal to build on these findings through a Group Sponsored Project ('GSP'), which interested parties are invited to Sponsor.

This webinar will be conducted by Drs David Allen and Ahmed Shibli
