Boiler Tube Failure Mechanisms Book Cover

Boiler Tube Failure Mechanisms Case Studies by Atanu Saha. This book provides an in-depth examination of boiler tube materials failure in specific situations, a vital component in both developing and engineering new solutions. It covers materials for steam boilers, the design life of components, different failure/ damage mechanisms of boiler tubes, and various case studies of boiler tube failure. Different examination methodologies including true pictures and micrographs are incorporated in each analysis of every case. It covers the analysis of materials failure in the areas of power industries, wherein the failure of a single component can result in devastating consequences and costs. Case studies related to short-term overheating, high-temperature creep, high-temperature failure, caustic corrosion, hydrogen damage, dissimilar weld failure, manufacturing defects, and corrosion fatigue are elaborately depicted in this book. This book is an indispensable reference for engineers and scientists studying the mechanisms of failure in this field.
