NONDESTRUCTIVE TESTING FOR DURABILITY EVALUATION OF NAVAL BOILERS

Metallurgical analysis of wasted and failed marine boiler tubes has shown that numerous wastage mechanisms are operative: overheating and external oxidation, external corrosion, internal pitting corrosion, stress-corrosion cracking and corrosion-fatigue cracking. Those wastage mechanisms which are expected to result in failures are being monitored by nondestructive testing which provides an accurate index to estimated boiler life.
