New publication by IEn researchers

2021 / 09 / 06

In the magazine Rynek Energii (4 /155, August 2021) there has been published the article prepared by researchers from IEn's Mechanical Division. The authors - Marcin Maternicki, Jacek Grodzicki, Krzysztof Romaniuk and Marek Rusiniak published their work entitled: Effect of metallographic research method on material life assessment. The article presents the relation between material life assessment as a result of metallographic research and the methods of specimen preparation and the equipment used, on an example of three component steels (Cr-Mo-V), type 14MoV6-3 (13HMF), and two components steels (Cr-Mo), type 10CrMo9-10 (10H2M).

Chosen as the leading issue was the detection of decohesion damage indicating operational danger. Analyzed steels 14MoV6-3 and 10CrMo9-10 are primary materials used in numerous domestic power plants and cogeneration stations. Correct material life assessment is of particular importance in the case of long-term operated pipelines made of steels mentioned above.
