    Abstract

    This paper summarizes recent experimental results, obtained at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), on creep behavior and creep rupture of a commercial grade of Si3N4 ceramic in the temperature range of 1150°C to 1300°C. A uniaxial model capable of describing the behavior under general thermomechanical loading is introduced and compared with existing models. An exploratory extension of the new model to a multiaxial form is then discussed. Issues are also discussed concerning the standardization of data analysis methodology and future research needs in the area related to development of creep database and life prediction methodology for high temperature structural ceramics.
