Abstract

Investigation of material creep behaviour in the diffusion controlled creep regime is often unfeasible because of the long duration associated with low stress levels. On the other side, extrapolation from higher creep rates usually provides inaccurate results because of the sharp change in the data trend as a result of the change in the governing deformation mechanism from dislocation to diffusion type controlled creep. Similarly, extrapolation based on creep models, which have been formulated and validated mainly for dislocation type creep (such power law creep with the creep exponent ranging from 6 to 9), underestimates the actual creep rate significantly. Recently, Bonora and Esposito (2010) developed a mechanism-based model (BE model) capable to account for deformation and damage mechanism occurring in creep. In this work the BE model was applied to AISI 316H stainless steel for which considerable creep data in both dislocation and diffusion temperature/stress controlled regime were available. Using the same data set, the predictive capabilities of several models were compared.
