Some Fundamental Aspects of Redesign and Remanufacture of High Temperature Components
The impact of remanufacturing on the conservation of energy and resources has been well recognized during the last decade. When the relevant technologies are applied for high temperature components in power and process industries, a redesign of the component life should be required due to the time-dependent feature of high temperature failure. In order to provide some fundamentals for redesign and remanufacture of high temperature components, mechanical behavior of a two-bar structure with one bar being remanufactured is analyzed. An optimal repairing time is given. From the viewpoint of creep damage, various high temperature structures are analyzed by using damage coupled finite element method. Suggestions for life extension remanufacture are proposed for typical high temperature components.
