Abstract

This article discusses the methods for assessing creep-rupture properties, particularly, nonclassical creep behavior. The determination of creep-rupture behavior under the conditions of intended service requires extrapolation and/or interpolation of raw data. The article describes the various techniques employed for data handling of most materials and applications of engineering interest. These techniques include graphical methods, methods using time-temperature parameters, and methods used for estimations when data are sparse or hard to obtain. The article reviews the estimation of required creep-rupture properties based on insufficient data. Methods for evaluation of remaining creep-rupture life, including parametric modeling, isostress testing, accelerated creep testing, evaluation by the Monkman-Grant coordinates, and the Materials Properties Council (MPC) Omega method, are also reviewed.
