Over the last 10 years EPRI has been researching critical information on the factors affecting the performance of creep strength enhanced ferritic steels in general and Grade 91 steel in particular. This work has resulted in a major new report which provides recommended guidelines for fabrication and the associated quality assurance to ensure that component properties meet or exceed the minimum expectations of ASME design approaches. The present paper outlines the recommendations in the report and provides technical background for specific aspects of the guide.
