At present time, a number of TPP power units having operated about 250000 h. in a relatively stationary operating
condition, changed to a maneuver mode. This transition caused a need in studying damageability of their equipment
according to the mechanism of fatigue and, in the first turn, welded joints of steam pipelines made of heat-resistant
steels, operating under the conditions of creep. A further increase in fatigue damageability causes an improvement in
the requirements to the initial structure of both the welded joints being produced as well as the parts to be repaired using
welding. 14 Ref., 12 Figures.
