General Problem of Condition and Remaining-Life Assessment of Metallic Structures in Water-Delivery Runs of Hydraulic Turbines at HPP

  • S. M. Levina
  • K. I. Vasil’chenko

Technical and organizational requirements for remaining-life assessment of metallic structures of the water-delivery run of hydraulic turbines at HPP are examined. The remaining service life of a structural component should be evaluated with consideration of its actual technical condition.
