... in stress (strain) and temperature. An example of a creep-related crack is shown in Fig. 2 . Cracks may develop at a critical location and propagate to failure before the end of the predicted creep-rupture life. Creep cracking may also originate at a stress concentration or at preexisting defects...

In addition, because of creep deformation, cracks in the matrix could nucleate at cracks in the protective oxide layer, and thus carbon in the gaseous environment could easily diffuse into the tube material. Also, the deposited coke on inner surface accelerates the diffusion of carbon and promotes the carbide...
