Creep is the time-dependent plastic strain at constant stress and temperature Creep curve : Fig. 13-4 steady-state creep-rate ( εD s or simply εD ) : Temperature and Stress Dependencies - Fig. 13-6 Fig. 13-8 - total creep curve : ε = εo + εp + εs εo = instantaneous strain at loading (elastic, anelastic and plastic) εs = steady-state creep strain (constant-rate viscous creep ) = εD st εp = primary or transient creep : Andrade-β flow (or 1/3 rd law) : βt1/3 primary or transient creep : Andrade-β flow (or 1/3 rd law) : εp = βt1/3 problem as t 0 Garofalo / Dorn Equation : εp = εt (1 - e-rt ) , r is related to Dorn Both primary and steady-state follow similar kinetics - temperature compensated time (θ = t e- Qc/RT) Ý - single universal curve with t replaced by θ or ε st > εi (~1-20) > εs D ε Or, creep strain ε - εo = εt (1 - e- st ) + εD st see Sherby-Dorn (Al), Murty (Zr) Sherby-Dorn θ-parameter Creep curves for Al at Sherby & Dorn (1956) (3,000 psi) and at three different temperatures KL Murty MSE 450 A single curve demonstrating the validity of θ-parameter page 1 Ý ε st Creep data in Zircaloy at varied temperatures (˚F) and stresses (ksi) fall into a single curve demonstrating the validity of Dorn equation (Murty et al 1976) (K.
