High-temperature mechanism-based design

  • F. A. Leckie


The historical development of the procedures used in high-temperature design using isotropic materials is described. It is illustrated how knowledge of the mechanisms causing time-dependent deformation and damage can help to describe the influence of the multi-axial states of stress occurring in practice and to provide rational procedures for extrapolating the results of short-term tests. Since the procedures are based on mechanisms, their structure lends itself readily to a concurrent engineering approach.
