Research on Creep Fracture Mechanics Parameter by Reference Stress Method
Creep fracture mechanics parameter C* is used to relate the data of Creep crack initiation (CCI) and Creep crack growth (CCG). Reference stress method (RSM) can be used to explain the result of finite element analysis on evaluating structures, and it is widely used to design and assess of general structures. The result of C* is affected by the creep coefficient A and creep exponent n for power-law creep in solving creep fracture mechanics parameter C* though using RSM.
