The HIDA project has resulted in the development of a draft 'HIDA Procedure' which is a unified and software based (or Knowledge-Based) European high temperature crack assessment procedure. It is a unified Procedure as its development has involved partners from a number of European countries who used the knowledge of their own country procedures/ codes to develop this procedure. This Procedure is expected to lead to the establishment of a European Standard. The Procedure is aimed at underwriting the structural integrity and fitness for purpose of all types of (cracked) industrial components operating at high temperatures (within the creep range) under steady state (creep) or fluctuating (fatigue) stresses. The HIDA Procedure is a simplified methodology for crack assessment and is based on both the validated methodologies of the existing European Procedures and those developed through the project.
