    In this study, to clarify the behaviour of micro- and macro-creep damage progression for P92 under multiaxial stress field, interrupted creep tests, analysis of multiaxial stress and detailed the cross-sectional observations were conducted on a circular notched round bar specimen which produces the multiaxial stress field due to the plastic constraint. As a result, creep voids were initiated at the early stage and they were formed up to the final fracture. These phenomena were found to be detected using direct current potential drop (DCPD) method. These results concern the development of the measurement of creep crack initiation. The distribution of high void area fraction was in good agreement with that of high hydrostatic stress and high multiaxial stress. This result indicates that multiaxial stress affects the void formation. Furthermore, the micro-creep damage of each interrupted specimen was evaluated by using the electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) method which can analyse crystallographic misorientation caused by creep strain. The results of EBSD analyses indicated that the value of grain reference orientation deviation (GROD) closely concerns the void initiation.
