The Role of Post Service Heat Treatment on the Contributions of Creep Deformation and Fracture to Service Life of AISI Type 316H Steel Components
Creep cavitation is a life limiting factor in stainless steel high temperature plant. However, regenerative heat treatments offer the potential of sintering creep cavities and thus extending a component’s time to failure. This is countered by thermal aging effects which can lead to precipitate formation and an increased creep rate. This study investigates these behaviours in a AISI Type 316H austenitic stainless steel.
