Abstract

This volume contains the proceedings of a discussion seminar, organized by the Information Centre of the High Temperature Materials Programme of the European Commission JRC, Petten Establishment. The seminar's purpose was to guide scientists towards the information the high temperature designer requires and conversely to inform the design engineer of the present state of materials research in relation to high temperature component design. The lectures were chosen to review available knowledge concerning high temperature design codes and practices for electrical generation and chemical/petrochemical production and to delineate the methods and progress in metallurgical research aimed at producing more directly usable data and the possibilities for component lifetime prediction. Moreover they provided a detailed description of the engineer's contribution to the component design problem via exact finite element analysis methods and finally covered the complex situation where property interactions, complex stresses and component testing require that a combined interdisciplinary materials engineering knowledge be applied. It is hoped that the papers, in book form, should satisfy both engineers and materials scientists and bring them closer together so that they can synergistically reach their goal.
