Empa, Switzerland, AKADEMIE
Background and Introduction
In addition to existing demands in many industry sectors, changes in the operating conditions of high temperature power plant components in particular have determined the need to fully exploit advances in knowledge relating to creep-fatigue crack development. In recent times, there has been an increasing tendency to more flexible operation, with improved performance and efficiency, without compromising reliability.
To date, 30 abstracts have been submitted for this two day Symposium by presenters from Europe, US, Japan, China and Korea.
