Paper Abstract

The evaluation of creep displacement and strain at a high temperature cylinder-nozzle welded joint over its design life of 20 - 30 years is an unresolved problem. The numerical solutions such as the finite element methods may not produce sufficiently accurate results for these high temperature welded joints because of uncertainties in the weld material properties, boundary conditions, constitutive equations, etc. While experimental techniques have, to a degree, been successful for ambient temperature applications, their application to the high temperature problems such as a cylinder-nozzle welded joint have been less successful. This paper outlines the current state-of-art of the experimental techniques that may be used for high temperature displacement and strain evaluation on the surface of a cylinder-nozzle welded joint.
