Constant-stress compressive creep tests were carried out on an Al-rich α2 single-phase material, which had equiaxed-grains of 60μm in grain size, at 1050approx.1250 K under 100approx.500MPa. The type of the primary creep stage and the microstructures developed during creep depend greatly on the creep condition. The minimum creep-rate, however, can be represented by one set of parameters over the whole range of experimental condition. The stress exponent is 5.0±0.2 and the (modulus-compensated) activation energy is 360±10kJ/mol. The Dorn-type plot of the minimum creep rate reveals that the normalized creep strength of the fine-grained Ti-34mol%Al is not greatly different from that of disordered solid-solution hardened alloys.
