ISO International Standard

Metallic materials — Uniaxial creep testing in tension — Method of test

This document specifies the methods for:

a)    uninterrupted creep tests with continuous monitoring of extension;

b)    interrupted creep tests with periodic measurement of elongation;

c)    stress rupture tests where normally only the time to fracture is measured;

d)    a test to verify that a predetermined time can be exceeded under a given force, with the elongation or extension not necessarily being reported.

NOTE       A creep test can be continued until fracture has occurred or it can be stopped before fracture.
