Abstract
Fatigue crack growth (FCG) behavior of 9Cr/CrMoV dissimilar welded joint at elevated temperature and different stress ratios was investigated. Attention was paid to the region near the fusion line of 9Cr where carbon-enriched zone (CEZ) and carbon-depleted zone (CDZ) formed due to carbon migration during the welding process. Hard and brittle tempered martensite dominated the stress ratio-insensitive FCG behavior in the coarse grain zone (CGZ) of 9Cr-HAZ. For crack near the CGZ–CEZ interface, crack deflection through the CEZ and into the CDZ was observed, accompanied by an accelerating FCG rate. Compared with the severe plastic deformation near the secondary crack in 9Cr-CGZ, the electron back-scattered diffraction analysis showed less deformation and lower resistance in the direction toward the brittle CEZ, which resulted in the transverse deflection. In spite of the plastic feature in CDZ revealed by fracture morphology, the less carbides due to carbon migration led to lower strength and weaker FCG resistance property in this region. In conclusion, the plasticity deterioration in CEZ and strength loss in CDZ accounted for the FCG path deflection and FCG rate acceleration, respectively, which aggravated the worst FCG resistance property of 9Cr-HAZ in the dissimilar welded joint.

Abstract Liquation cracks are generally regarded as thermal defects in various materials, e.g. in steels and nickel-based alloys. However, direct observation of microstructure with crack-like morphology that may be revealed by chemical etching or electrochemical etching methods, might lead to the misinterpretation of liquation cracks. To avoid the possible misinterpretation, comparative etching was employed to reveal the effect of various etching processes on the determination of liquation crack...

ABSTRACTDissimilar metal welds (DMWs) between ferritic steel grades are found extensively in the construction of thermal power plants. The potential combinations and approaches for joining dissimilar ferritic steels are nearly limitless. For DMWs, the difference in alloy composition (specifically chromium and carbide-forming elements) provides the main driving force for carbon diffusion during welding, post-weld heat treatment and long-term service at elevated temperatures. Since the high temper...

High chromium (9–12% Cr) steels with excellent heat resistance and CrMoV steels with good toughness were potential candidates for combined rotor for steam turbine operated over 620 °C. Two welding techniques were used to fabricate 9% Cr and CrMoV dissimilar welded joint. The results show that the carbon migration only appears in the specimen using narrow gap submerged arc welding (NG-SAW) technique, yet it can be effectively prevented by adding tungsten inert gas (TIG) overlaying process before ...

Abstract The current work investigates activated flux TIG welding of dissimilar steel combination of 8 mm thick plates of Modified 9Cr-1Mo (P91) steel and 2.25Cr-1Mo (P22) steel. The effect of different fluxes namely- SiO2, TiO2, Cr2O3, MoO3 and CuO on the weld bead geometry was investigated. The possible mechanism for the increase in depth of penetration has been discussed. The integrity of the weld joint made with MoO3 flux was investigated by evaluating metallurgical and mechanical characteri...

In the work, a 5%Cr weld metal for the 9Cr/2.25Cr dissimilar welded joint was designed. The creep rupture, tensile, and impact behaviors of the weld metal and welded joint were tested and compared with those of the dissimilar welded joint with the 2.25%Cr weld metal. The result showed that the alloy design of the 5%Cr weld metal had a significant effect on reducing the degree of carbon migration at the joint interface. The interfacial creep damage and early failure tendency were reduced greatly....

To investigate the influence of tantalum content on high-temperature mechanical properties of low-carbon reduced activation ferritic/martensitic (RAFM) steels, RAFM steels containing different tantalum contents (0 and 0.073%) were fabricated, and the tensile tests at room temperature and high temperature were performed, as well as the creep tests were conducted at 550 °C with the applied stress of 180 and 220 MPa. It was found that 0.073% tantalum addition results in the increase in amount of st...

The impact toughness and related microstructure of the dissimilar 9Cr/NiCrMoV welded joint fabricated by narrow-gap submerged arc welding were systematically investigated in the paper. Results indicated that the fracture appearance transition temperature (50% FATT) for weld metal was −11 °C, while low and scattered absorbed energies determined by different crack growth paths for the heat affected zone of 9Cr were gained which could not satisfy the requirement of service. However, a dramatically ...

Integrating solar energy into a conventional fossil-fuel fired power plant through solar-aided coal-fired power generation (SACPG) mechanism has been proven to be an efficient way to use solar energy for power generation purposes. However, due to the rather intermittency of solar radiation, SACPG systems always work under off-design conditions. In this paper, hourly based annual performances of a SACPG system was simulated and analyzed with various solar field sizes and thermal energy storage (T...

Some existing wrought Ni–Cr–Co-based superalloys are being evaluated as the candidate materials for advanced ultra-supercritical power plant applications beyond 700 °C due to their high creep strength. But they are all prohibitively expensive due to the addition of Co, Mo and W. Here we developed a new Ni–Fe–Cr-based superalloy (named as HT700 alloy) with low cost and high strength. This paper reports the mechanical properties and fracture modes of HT700 alloy to support its high temperature app...

This article deals with the dissimilar joining of two different grade Cr-Mo steel (2.25Cr-1Mo: P22 and modified 9Cr-1Mo: P91) for power plant application. The dissimilar butt-welded joint was produced for conventional V groove design by using the gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) process with the application of an ERNiCrMo-3 Ni-based super alloy filler. A microstructure characterization was performed to measure the inhomogeneity in the microstructure and element diffusion across the interface in a...
