    Abstract

    The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), through its Committee E08 on Fatigue and Fracture subcommittee E08.05 on Creep-Fatigue Crack Formation, has recently developed a new standard for creep-fatigue testing (ASTM E2714-09). This paper describes the plans and preliminary results from a round-robin being presently conducted in support and verification of this new standard. The choice of the test material (ASTM Grade P91), the design of the round-robin test matrix, and a machining plan for the specimens are described. The results of microstructural analysis, tensile testing, and creep deformation and rupture testing are also presented along with some preliminary results from creep-fatigue testing. A new analytical model for representing the creep deformation characteristics of this material is also presented and evaluated using the creep data generated as part of the round-robin program. The results of the round-robin creep-fatigue testing will be used to make appropriate modifications to the test standard.
