This book is an outcome of the first conference in the series of specialist conferences, held at Robinson College, Cambridge in June 1996. It deals with the microstructural stability of high temperature, creep resistant, 9-12% Chromium martensitic power plant steels.

Precipitation Processes in Martensitic 12CrMoVNb Steels During High Temperature Creep 3. The Development of 9% CrMo Steels from Steel 91 to E911 4. Development of Advanced High Chromium Ferritic Steels 5. Microstructural Development in Advanced 9–12% Cr Creep Resisting Steels – a Collaborative Investigation in Cost 501/3 WP11 6. Evolution of Microstructure and Properties of 10% Cr Steel Castings 7. Microstructural Development and Stability in New High Strength Steels for Thick Section Applications at up to 620°C 8. Microstructure of Advanced High Chromium Power Plant Steels 9. Thermodynamic Prediction of Microstructure 10. Modelling the Developments of Microstructure in Power Plant Steels
