Unformatted text preview: Creep Test 10MAR08 First Author: Rondolf J. Moreno Secondary Authors: Alex Jagnanan James Eski Nolan Abstract This laboratory test measures the amount of deflection of a material within a period of time. Conducting such a test allows for considerations in material fatigue and ultimately, failure. This is especially important in applications such as turbine blades where components are expected to withstand deformations under high loads for a long duration of time. In this test, six plexiglass beams are put under different loads to measure the amount of creep in each specimen. Each load was evenly distributed across each beam that was held in place at the ends. Dial gauges were used to measure the creep in each specimen and several stopwatches were used to measure the elapsed time for each beam. The results yielded several phases of “jumps” in deformation (creep) instead of a continuous deformation.
