Abstract

The overall aim of this research programme was to develop predictive erosion/corrosion models for material degradation in coal conversion systems. To achieve this goal the interaction between erosion and corrosion in coal conversion system environments has been examined in order to determine the mechanism by which material degradation proceeds. It was then possible to develop and verify predictive erosion/corrosion models and validate the models against laboratory and in-service data. The important parameters have been identified for three energy conversion systems where erosion/corrosion phenomena are of some importance, namely in fluidised bed coal combustion, in coal gasifiers and in gas turbines for combined cycle systems.
