Authors would also like to thank Dr. W.B.A. Sharp from MeadWestvaco, Dr. Ray
Vasudevan from International Paper, John Hainsworth from B&W, and Dr. Peter Gorog from
Weyerhaeuser Company for their advise and support in this project. Representative boiler
tubes from the Weyerhaeuser Longview mill were provided by D. Rittenbach
(Weyerhaeuser). A. Willoughby (ORNL) managed photography and specimen handling for
the SAC investigation. Tube panels were flame cut longitudinally into manageable sections
for handling by L. Smarsh (ORNL). Circumferential wave inspections were performed by
M. Cooper, J. Gustafson, and S. Shankles (Longview Inspections). Longitudinal wave
inspections were performed by M. Quarry (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory) and J.
Brignac (Alstom Power). Radiographic inspections were performed by R. Sweet and C.
Culbertson (Longview Inspections). Following the various inspections, tubes were saw cut
into sections to facilitate visual inspections and metallographic sampling by B. Gaskin
(ORNL). H. Longmire (ORNL) prepared and photographed the metallography specimens.
L. Walker (ORNL) performed the SEM and microprobe analyses. Along with P. Singh
(Georgia Institute of Technology), D. Wilson and P. Tortorelli (ORNL) reviewed the draft
manuscript, and F. Stooksbury and K. Choudhury (ORNL) helped prepare the final
document. Help of Mr. Jamshad Mahmood, and Dr. Jorge Perdomo and other researchers at
IPST @ GaTech, who worked on this project, is greatly appreciated.
