Application of Failure Analysis Processes for Plant Components

This webinar will concentrates on several failure analysis case histories that are applicable to components within conventional fossil plants.

The case histories that will be shared contain components from the beginning, the middle, and the end of the power generation process and will focus primarily on the laboratory analyses that were utilized to identify the mechanisms.

What you will learn
  • Failure analysis case histories focusing on components in conventional fossil plants
  • Discuss components from all aspects of power generation including beginning, middle and end
  • Hear about the laboratory analyses that were utilized to identify the mechanisms
