J. Eng. Mater. Technol 139(4), 041013 (Aug 03, 2017) (6 pages) Paper No: MATS-17-1098; doi: 10.1115/1.4037312 History: Received April 05, 2017; Revised June 22, 2017

The creep behaviors of TA2 and R60702 at low and intermediate temperature were presented and discussed in this paper. Experimental results indicated that an apparent threshold stress was exhibited in the creep deformation of R60702. Meanwhile, the primary creep phase was found as the main pattern in the room temperature creep behavior of TA2. Compared with the exponential law, the power law has been proved to be a proper constitutive model in the description of primary creep phase. It also showed that θ projection method had its significant advantage in the evaluation of accelerated creep stage. Thus, a composite model which combined power law with θ projection method was applied in the creep curves evaluation at low and intermediate temperature. Based on the multiaxial creep deformation results, the model was modified and discussed. A linear relationship existed between composite model parameters and applied load. Finally, the creep life of TA2 and R60702 could be accurately predicted by the composite model, and it is suitable for the application in low and intermediate temperature creep life analysis.
