Creep Life Prediction of Waspaloy Using the Initial Strain Parameter Technique


Article Preview

The purpose of this study is to investigate the high temperature creep life of Waspaloy using the Initial Strain Parameter Technique (ISPT). The creep tests were performed at the elevated temperatures from 550oC to 700 oC. Constant stress creep tests were carried out in the experiment. The initial strain was measured for one minute after loading. The creep life of Waspaloy was calculated using the creep life prediction equation of ISPT. The confidence level between the experimental rupture time and the calculated rupture time using the ISPT is within 95%. So, the results show that the creep life prediction by the ISPT was a good agreement with LMP method.
