Literature Review on the Development of Computational Software System for Creep Damage Analysis for Weldment


Article Preview

This paper reports a literature review on the development of computational software system for creep damage analysis for weldment. It starts with a brief review on the creep damage problem in weldment and the computational approach; identifies the need for computational approach and the un-availability of such computational system; further details on the preliminary development progress of a transfer programme and constitutive equation subroutines. This paper contributes to knowledge to the development of computational system for creep damage analysis.
