Abstract:

Laboratory exposures cannot reproduce all the features present in service conditions. The experimentalist is faced with the conflict between increasing the complexity of laboratory tests to replicate service more closely and keeping testing costs low by maintaining a simple procedure. The influence of various experimental parameters, which can be controlled in the laboratory, on the steam oxidation response of materials is discussed and recommendations for best practice are proposed.
