Modeling of a Long-Term Creep Curve of Alloy 617 for a High Temperature Gas-Cooled Reactor
This study aimed to model the long-term creep curves above 105 hours by implementing a nonlinear least square fitting (NLSF) of the Kachanov-Rabotnov (K-R) model. For this purpose, the short-term creep curves obtained from a series of creep tests at 950oC were used. In the NLSF of their full creep curves, the K-R model represented a poor match to the experimental curves, but the modified K-R one revealed a good agreement to them. The Monkman-Grant (M-G) strain represented the behavior of a stress dependency, but the parameter was constant with a stress independency. The value in the modified K-R model was 2.78. Long-term creep curves above 105 hours from short-term creep data were modeled by the modified K-R model.
