Title: Creep-Fatigue Behavior and Damage Accumulation of a Candidate Structural Material for Concentrating Solar Power Thermal Receiver Quarter 6 Report

Abstract

Creep-fatigue deformation is an important consideration for a thermal receiver in Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) systems due to the constant static stress or pressure, diurnal cycling, and elevated service temperatures required for efficient operation. An accurate description of the creep-fatigue behavior, not available for five of the six candidate materials, is important for assessment of preliminary designs. This project will provide a detailed analysis of the creep-fatigue behavior and damage accumulation of a candidate structural material for a CSP solar thermal receiver to address a critical knowledge barrier for receiver designs identified in the CSP Gen3 Demonstration Roadmap. This effort includes the development of rules for the design of solar receiver components against high temperature creep-fatigue and ratcheting failure modes. The ASME Code rules for high temperature nuclear components will form the basis of the method but adjustments will be made to reflect the generally shorter, diurnal operating cycles of thermal receivers and the relative consequences of failure, comparing nuclear to solar components.
