Title: Materials selection for geothermal steam turbines

The following materials properties and characteristics are discussed: tensile properties, modules of elasticity, corrosion resistance, erosion resistance, fatigue strength, coefficient of thermal expansion, susceptibility to brittle fracture (toughness), material damping, specific heat, thermal conductivity, hardenability, and weldability. Materials used for turbines using steam from fossil fuel fired boilers are described. (WHR)
