Creep-strength enhanced ferritic steels such as Gr.92, Gr.122, Gr.23 and Gr.91 have recently been introduced for power plant applications, and some of these have experienced creep failure in boiler tubes and thick wall components after several years of operation. In order to use these steels safely in power plants, understanding of creep failure behavior is essential. In this study the creep failure of Gr.91 and Gr.92 boiler tube base metal and Type IV cracking of Gr.92, Gr.122, Gr.23 and Gr.91 welds were reproduced in test piece of actual components size. Creep failure mode was investigated, as was microstructural morphology during creep, particularly in the weldment, with discussion based on evidence of void formation and changes in the physical damage in terms of creep life.
