The Residual Life Estimation of Thermo-Mechanical Fatigue of Coke Tower


Article Preview

In this paper, the tests of the thermo-mechanical fatigue of the material, cut from a coke tower were performed. The tower made of 20G has been in service for 20 years. Then, we calculated the temperature and stress-strain. The results showed that the tower can be in service for another four years.
