Part of the Advanced Structured Materials book series (STRUCTMAT, volume 64)


This review provides a current status in modeling and analysis of structures for high-temperature applications. Basic features of inelastic behavior of heat resistant alloys are discussed. Typical responses for stationary and varying loading and temperature are presented and classified. Microstructural features and microstructural changes in the course of inelastic deformation at high temperature are discussed. The state of the art on material modeling and structural analysis in the inelastic range at high temperature is resented.
