Damage Analysis of Heat Resistant Steels


Article Preview

This paper shows the result of some metallographical examinations that have been carried out on low-alloyed Cr-Mo-V heat resistant steel. The aim of this research is to present and compare the advantages and disadvantages of the mainly applied metallographical methods. These techniques are optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, replica method and special applications of these methods. We have proved that using the investigated methods together gives much more information about the lifetime of the specimen than using these techniques particularly.
