Abstract
The life-limiting fitness for service of high-temperature components is of interest in design, fabrication and later assessments of remaining creep life. Of the associated indicators, strain reflects creep in design and in service, while the discontinuities like creep cavities are targeted in the in-service inspections. Microstructure and hardness can provide supporting information on the material condition. Here, we assess such indicators for the creep-associated damage, particularly at the early stages. Improvements appear possible, e.g. in microscopy to support metallographic inspections and in utilising the widening inspection experience on newer materials. The present work successfully integrated the Wilshire/LCSP creep strain and rupture models with FE analysis for predicting creep strain evolution. Since the model applies for the whole creep curve, it can be used for early stages of creep down to the limit of negligible creep and to the lower limit of the window where creep cavitation damage can be observed.
