    Abstract

    The factors responsible for the development of microstructure in CEGB construction ceramics and steels are assessed as a function of composition, thermomechanical treatment, thermal ageing, and environmental degradation. The relationships between microstructure and mechanical properties (tensile, toughness, creep, and fatigue) of relevance to structures operating in power generation equipment are then developed in quantitative terms.

    Keywords:

    ferritic and stainless steels, graphite, uranium dioxide, concrete, relationship between mechanical properties and microstructure
