... Abstract When a steam turbine was put out of service, cracks were noticed on many of the blades in the low pressure section round the stabilization bolts and perpendicular to the blade axis. The blades were made from chrome alloy steel X20-Cr13 (Material No. 1.402). When the bolts were brazed...

... stainless steel of the type commonly used for turbine blades. A number of non-metallic inclusions were present which had been drawn into threads in rolling; these appeared to consist largely of duplex silicates. The failure of blade 28 was the result of the development of a creeping crack. Magnetic crack...
