Application of Creep Ductility Model for Evaluation Creep Crack Growth Rate of Type 316SS Series


Article Preview

This paper is to evaluate the creep crack growth rate (CCGR) of the type 316SS series: 316SS, 316FR and 316LN, and to apply a creep ductility model. A number of the data are collected through wide literature surveys and experiment, and evaluated by the C* parameter. The results of the CCGR data were nearly matched with a small scattering band regardless of the different applied stresses, temperatures and test specimens configuration. In the CCGR, type 316FR and 316LN steels were slower than type 316SS. Type 316SS showed a better agreement in the application of the creep ductility model than the type 316FR and 316LN steels.
