Optimisation of in-service performance of boiler steels by modelling high temperature corrosion

Objective

The aim is to develop a LCA for the materials in energy production, particularly for steels used in waste incinerators and co-fired boiler plants. The efficiency, safety and optimal use of boilers, require control of high temperature corrosion of the critical components under high temperatures and pressures. The value of control is growing with the increasing service values for efficient production and needs to use flexible and less cleaner fuels (recycled & ind. waste + biomass).

Industrial environment and component combinations will be tested with relevant material specifications for data acquisition to understand the corrosion mechanisms. Computer-based simulation methods are introduced and customised to apply rigorous thermodynamic and kinetic data to empirical systems. The data and simulations are verified with plant tests. The innovative aspects are introducing kinetic models to the calculations and development of user friendly Toolboxes
