Part of the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics book series (IUTAM)


Recent developments in the understanding of creep fracture in both uniaxial tension and multiaxial stress states are outlined. Simple analytical equations for void growth are given. It is shown how these mechanistic models can be used to help the engineer in the extrapolation of creep data.
