The subject was “Performance and Requirements of Structural Materials for Modern High Efficient Power Plants.” Discussions concentrated on the issue of high temperature strength in high Cr heat-resistant steels, which has become a problem worldwide, including Germany and Japan. The workshop featured 11 presentations from the Japanese side and 10 from the European side. The next workshop in this series is scheduled for March 2007 at NIMS.
