    Abstract

    A comparison of two kinds of creep-fatigue life prediction methods, Life Fraction Rule and Strainrange Partitioning, was performed for the cases of creep-fatigue tests under uniaxial strain-controlled conditions at 500 to 600°C in air, using a normalized and tempered 2 1/4Cr-1Mo steel. The main focus was on the influence of stress-strain behavior on life prediction. Two kinds of stress-strain values (i.e., experimental values and calculated values by inelastic analysis) were used for the life prediction of creep-fatigue tests. The results show that life prediction by the Life Fraction Rule was very sensitive to the stress-strain values, indicating a large discrepancy between predicted and observed lives in some cases, and that life prediction by the Strainrange Partitioning method was not so sensitive to the stress-strain values, indicating a good agreement between predicted and observed lives in all cases.
