Summary Annotation This book provides a comprehensive reference on coal power plant materials, their behaviour under operational loads, and approaches to life assessment and defect management. The book initially details the range of structural alloys utilised in coal power plants, and the life assessment techniques applicable to defect-free components under operational loads. The book then goes on to review the life assessment techniques applicable to components containing defects and the risk-based inspection and life management approaches that can be adopted to optimise both long term plant operation and new plant and component design. Finally, the book considers the technical and economic assessment of thermal cycling and low load operation, i.e. the flexible operation of coal power plant to meet variable energy demands rather than just baseload power.
