Creep rupture of a 9Cr1MoNbV steel at 500 °C : base metal and welded joint

Abstract : ASME Grade 91 steel base metal and a similar weld were tested under creep at 500 °C for rupture time up to 18,000 h. Creep failure of cross-weld specimens occurs in the weld metal at this temperature. No significant microstructural changes were observed after creep. Analysis of creep deformation of smooth creep bars, welded joints and slightly notched bars indicated an apparent creep stress exponent of 19. For the creep conditions considered, failure of the material can be explained by the viscoplastic instability of the specimens without significant damage development. This allowed to develop a simple analysis for time to failure prediction.
