Creep and Stress Rupture : Ch. 13 : 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 15(optional) Definition of Creep and Creep Curve : (13-3) def. Creep is the time-dependent plastic strain at constant stress and temperature Creep curve : Fig. 13-4 steady-state creep-rate ( D s or simply D ) : Temperature and Stress Dependencies - Fig. 13-6 Fig. 13-8 - total creep curve : = o + p + s o = instantaneous strain at loading (elastic, anelastic and plastic) s = steady-state creep strain (constant-rate viscous creep ) = D st p = primary or transient creep : Andrade- flow (or 1/3 rd law) : t1/3 primary or transient creep : Andrade- flow (or 1/3 rd law) : p = t1/3 problem as t 0 Garofalo / Dorn Equation : p = t (1 - e-rt ) , r is related to Dorn Both primary and steady-state follow similar kinetics - temperature compensated time ( = t e- Qc/RT) - single universal curve with t replaced by or st > i (~1-20) > s D Or, creep strain - o = t (1 - e- st ) + D st see Sherby-Dorn (Al), Murty (Zr) Sherby-Dorn -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 -parameter page 1 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.

Similarly, d2 and d3. Dividing by dt, get the corresponding creep-rates, eff 1 D 1= [1 - 2 (2+3) ], etc. eff One first determines the uniaxial creep-rate equation, D s = A n e-Q/RT n and assume the same for effective strain-rate : D eff = A eff e-Q/RT n-1 1 1 = A eff e-Q/RT [1 - 2 (2+3)] so that etc. Stress Relaxation As noted in section 8-11, the stress relaxation occurs when the deformation is held constant such as in bolt in flange where the constraint is that the total length of the system is fixed. t = E + creep = const. Here, E = E . dt 1 d d Or, dt = - E D s = - E A n @ fixed T Thus dt = 0 = E dt + D s Integration from o to t gives, f t d n = - E A dt = - E A t o i 100 Data from "HW #8-8" 80 60 final or (t ) = o n [1 + AE (n 1) o 1t ]1 /( n 1) 40 20 0 1000 2000 3000 4000 5000 time, hr KL Murty MSE 450 page 3 Deformation / Creep Mechanisms : Introduction - structural changes (13-5) - Slip (difficult to observe slip lines / folds etc are usually noted) Subgrains GBS - excess (deformation induced) vacancies Two important relationships : Orowan equation : D =bv and Taylor equation : = 2 2G2b2 Thermally Activated Dislocation Glide (at low T and/or high strain-rates) D = A eB e-Qi/RT where Qi is the activation energy for the underlying mechanisms Peierls mechanism (bcc metals) Intersection mechanism (fcc and hcp metals) Dislocation creep - (lattice) diffusion controlled glide and climb Diffusion creep - (viscous creep mechanisms mainly due to point defects) - at low stresses and high temperatures Grain-Boundary Sliding - (GBS) - intermediate stresses in small grained materials and ceramics (where matrix deformation is difficult) Many different mechanisms may contribute and the total strain-rate : parallel mechanism (fastest controls / dominates) D = Di i series mechanisms (slower controls / dominates) D = 1 i 1 Slip following creep deformation in -iron Uncrept specimen Crept at 5500 psi to 21.5% strain (K.L.
