A 3D finite element model, based on the combination of a creep model and a ductility exhaustion approach, is presented and validated on the basis of creep crack growth tests. The proposed model is used to characterize creep crack growth in a pressurized cylinder with an axial crack on the inside...
Austeno-ferritic (duplex) stainless steels are prone to age hardening and to embrittle over a wide temperature range depending on their chemical composition and, obviously, on the heat treatment conditions. This is mainly due to precipitation phenomena that occur inside ferritic grain and at...
