To increase the efficiency of steam turbines, research activities conducted by power plant builders and operators focus on investigating the fatigue and fracture mechanics behaviour of the materials used. In this demonstration, you will learn why the patented Kappa SS-CF is ideal for advanced creep fatigue tests in cyclic applications in the low frequency range up to 2 Hz.
