Fundamentals of Creep in Aluminum Over a Very Wide Temperature Range
Some of the earliest characterization of steady-state creep in aluminum, was developed at UC Berkeley by John Dorn, his students and postdoctoral scholars, one being K.L. Murty. Research of the group included classic five power-law creep, Harper-Dorn creep, power-law breakdown and viscous glide. Many of the models and theories persisted for a relatively long period of time due to the thoughtfulness of the work. This paper discusses the more recent developments in these phenomena that may lead to new interpretations in aluminum creep, as well as other crystalline materials.
