Development of Computational Capabilities to Predict the Corrosion Wastage of Boiler Tubes in Advanced Combustion Systems

Performer: Babcock & Wilcox Power Generation Group, Inc.

Project No: FC26-07NT43097

Program Background and Project Benefits

This project will develop computational models to predict corrosion associated with staged combustion techniques used to reduce NOx emissions. This project will aid in the design and maintenance of boilers, especially those operating at elevated temperatures, and will contribute to attainment of DOE targets for increased efficiency and reduced emissions in power plants.
