Innovate residual service time assessment of industrial plant components using real structure analysis by on site x-ray diffraction

Objective

The scientific and technological objectives of the proposed research project are to develop a prototype of an integrated measuring and monitoring system for residual life time assessment of high temperature plant components in fossil power generation and chemical industry. The project shall develop an innovative inspection methodology using real structure analysis by on site X-ray diffraction and integrate it into the infrastructure of inspection and maintenance. An interdisciplinary approach covering several research fields shall be undertaken. It is the novel material ageing characterisation method using on site X-ray diffraction. The work will comprise design and prototype of the hardware and software for data acquisition and residual life time evaluation as well as simulation of ageing processes. A final on-site testing in a real plant shall demonstrate the feasibility and benefits.
