Modeling Creep-Fatigue-Environment Interactions in Stream Turbine Rotor Materials for Advanced Ultras

Performer: General Electric Company

Project No: FE0005859

Program Background and Project Benefits

This project will enable more accurate prediction of long service life of advanced alloys for AUSC power plants These advancements will enable faster materials design and implementation and better producibility of large scale components. Improvement to high-temperature advanced-materials will promote the development of advanced power plant designs that can operate at higher temperatures and pressures, leading to higher efficiency and operational flexibility and resulting in lower capital and operating costs.
