Abstract
The creep of materials is a research topic of major significance in the life assessment and design of many modern engineering components of advance technology such as: power generation plant, chemical plant, gas turbines, jet engines, spacecrafts, components made of plastics and polymers, etc. To predict the creep life of such components, one necessary ingredient is a creep damage model. The current creep damage models are either too cumbersome to be readily employed and/or not sufficiently accurate for practical applications. This paper describes a new multiaxial creep damage model that alleviates the major shortcomings of the existing models yet it is relatively simple and accurate being readily applicable to industrial cases.
