Creep Fatigue, Part III: Diercks Equation: Modification and Applicability

Abstract

Creep-fatigue data of low allow steels were compiled from international sources, and trends in creep-fatigue behavior were identified in Paper I. Methods of life prediction and their trends were examined in Paper II with respect to compiled data. Diercks equation, a multivariate creep-fatigue life extrapolation equation, for SS, 304, in terms of strain range, temperature, hold time and strain rate parameters is modified and extended to the life prediction of low alloy steels in this paper
