it has long been known that a cobalt addition increases the resistance to tempering in steels. This may be due to the fact that Co raises the Curie-temperature which retards diffusion. In the present work the effect of Co on coarsening of M23C6 in the 9% Cr steel P92 is studied by computer simulations. The results show that a final average radius of the carbides after 30 000 h at 600 degreesC decreases with 30 % with a Co addition of 10 mass %. This raises the Orowan stress with 30 %. Moreover, ii is assumed that slower particle coarsening also leads to a retarded coarsening of the martensite lath structure.
