Abstract

In components under static creep loading condition, the multiaxial stress fields appear due to the plastic constraint and they produce a more brittle type cracking behavior. From a practical standpoint, the characterizations of creep crack growth rates under the multiaxial stress field are important to improve the methods for creep life extension. In this paper, creep crack growth tests were conducted using round bar specimens with sharp circular notches for tungsten-added 12%Cr ferritic heat-resistant steel (W12%Cr steel), and the effect of multiaxiality on creep ductility and creep crack growth rate were investigated. Furthermore, three-dimensional elastic-plastic creep finite element analyses were conducted to clarify the effect of multiaxiality on creep crack growth.
