This paper discusses different methods for calculating the residual life for boiler pressure components operating under creep conditions, based on tube outside diameter strain measurements. These measurements were made for over 20 yr. The methods have been applied to the residual life calculation for pipelines of 20 or more years of service. Then the results have been compared.
