Abstract: The metallurgical background and the physical properties of the steels used in power plant are briefly described. The microstructures of the steels after the production heat treatment and after long-term service exposure are discussed and the mechanical properties, especially the creep rupture strength, are shown. The strengthening mechanisms are considered and effects of the microstructural changes after long-term service exposure on the creep rupture strength explained. Because of the microstructural changes, care has to be taken in deriving long-term creep rupture strength estimates from experimental data. It is shown that steam oxidation may be a significant life-limiting factor for thin section components operating at temperatures around 600 o C.
