Density of loose-fill insulation material exposed to cyclic humidity conditions (NT TR 565)

NT TR 565

  • This report presents a proposal for a standardised method for creep tests and the empirical framework necessary for determining the density for volume-stable state of a granulated loose-fill material as a function of the applied stress when exposed to a climate characterised as cyclic humidity conditions.

Creep of granulated loose-fil insulation - Test method and round robin test (NT TR 491)

NT TR 491

  • This report presents a proposal for a standardised method for creep tests and the necessary theoretical framework that can be used to describe creep of a granulated loose-fill material. Furthermore results from a round robin test are shown.

Guidelines for evaluating in-service creep damage (NT TR 302)

NT TR 302

  • To indicate safe life or re-evaluation periods for high-temperature components, assessment based on measured creep cavitation damage is used worldwide. To interpret the observed damage unambiguously requires evaluation of the extent of damage on a unique, clearly defined and accepted scale. The presently available European damage scales in the guidelines NORDTEST NT TR 170 and VGB-TW 507 provide reference micrographs for a range of creep damage in the most common high-temperature steels. However, these guidelines differ in their stated and implicit definitions of a given class (extent) of damage, although both guidelines are nominally based on the same original Neubauer scale of creep damage.

Metallographic assessment of the temperature history and remanent life of power plant components (NT MAT 002)

NT MAT 002

  • This NORDTEST method describes how oxide thickness measurements and/or metallographic investigations (changes in carbide distribution) can be used to assess the temperature history of superheater and reheater tubes.
