Quantifying Creep Damage Evolution at High Temperature

Lead Research Organisation: Open University
Department Name: Faculty of Sci, Tech, Eng & Maths (STEM)


The Open University and Imperial College are part of the EDF Energy High Temperature Centre. The OU leads research quantifying creep deformation, damage and failure in unclear power plant materials operating at high temperatures using advanced techniques including Digital Image Correlation, Electron Backscattering Diffraction, Field Ion Beam serial sectioning, X-ray tomography and Small Angle Neutron Scattering as well as conventional miroscopy.
