Description of creep within the framework of the field theory of defects

  • Yu. V. Grinyaev
  • N. V. Chertova


The creep laws are described within the framework of the field theory with the use of evolution equations for the density flux of uniformly distributed defects. For the case of uniaxial deformation under constant stress, it is shown that a certain critical stress that has the sense of creep stability limit exists and two deformation regimes can occur, depending on the magnitude of the external load. The unstable-creep rupture time is determined for the system in the case where the stresses are greater than the critical stress and the initial rate exceeds the unstable stationary rate.
