Title:Influence of temperature on reversed creep
Author(s):Jaske, Carl E.
Subject(s):Reversed Creep
Abstract:Several investigators have reported an acceleration of creep in metals due to repeated stress reversals. In order to determine the temperature dependence of this acceleration, reversed creep experiments have been carried out on commercially pure aluminum at temperatures from 300 to 510 K and shear stresses between ±2500 to ±6000 psi. The data show a transition from deceleration at the lowest temperatures to significant acceleration at the highest temperatures. This transition occurs at an homologous temperature of about 0.45, but the transition point is not well-defined because the behavior is also slightly dependent upon the stress and strain range. Cyclic creep acceleration or deceleration tends to approach a dynamic equilibrium, and it is shown that this state of equilibrium can be mathematically approximated by a function of the four important variables in reversed creep tests - stress amplitude, strain range, strain rate and temperature. Also, the stress dependence of the average creep rate at equilibrium is found to be similar to that of the minimum tensile creep rate.
