Extended Room-Temperature Creep Testing of Grade 2 CP Titanium Plate Using Notch Tensile Samples

  • Daniel P. Dennies
  • Robert Kupkovits


Commercially pure (CP) Titanium has a unique behavior in that creep can occur at room temperature. In addition, many materials exhibit an effect from a notch on mechanical properties. This paper shall review 2000-h room-temperature creep data generated using notched tensile bars from Grade 2 CP Titanium at loads which were between 30 and 50% of the notch yield strength. The results shall be compared to previously generated data (Dennies and Kupkovits in J Fail Anal Prev 14(4):437–442, 2014).
