Paper Title:
Monitoring Creep Strain in Power Station Engineering Plant
  Abstract

Cost effective and reliable operation of a power station plant and achieving low carbon dioxide emissions can be very dependent on maintenance activities. Planning maintenance to minimise the down-time of the plant is a key cost factor. It is important to have the latest data as to the age and state of the components and parts at the time of plant shut down. Indeed, deciding on the best time to shut down the plant for maintenance can depend upon trends in these data. For steam pipes, the required ageing information is the creep strain rate. These creep strain data obtained at shut down provide key information as to the needed replacement of pipes to maintain reliable plant operation. This paper presents the E.ON UK ARCMAC creep strain measurement systems that are being further developed by Imperial College London with the use of DIC and other techniques.
