Creep Rupture Studies of Zirlo Tubing Using Ring Tensile Specimen


Article Preview

A burst rupture test has been mainly used for evaluating the burst properties of internal pressurized tubes. Although the burst creep test provides accurate results, its complicated and material-wasting process makes it difficult to perform this test. In the burst test, it is known that the hoop stress is a main reason of burst, so it can be expected that the burst rupture properties are strongly related with the hoop creep rupture properties. A ring test is occasionally used for obtaining the hoop directional properties of tube-shaped structures. In this study, the creep rupture properties of Zirlo tubing are investigated at temperature ranging from 365 to 570  using the ring specimens. An analysis of the fractography was performed and the estimation of service life with Larson-Miller parameter was conducted. Finally, In view of the Dorn equation of power-law, the creep mechanism was determined and discussed.
