According to the present standard provisions, the test lasts at least 6 months (26 wk) and may be extended to a year if the permissible creep limit is exceeded.
The time for attainment of the creep limit depends on the specific adhesive and can vary considerably.
The creep limit is defined as the magnitude of the maximum allowable stress that can be applied without damaging the material in a specific range of environmental conditions, and it is usually determined through a creep test.
characteristics of materials (mechanical characteristics: yield stress, stress limit, hardness, fracture toughness, endurance, long-term strength, creep limits, chemical composition, microstructure characteristics, etc.
The objective of the case study is to select tubes that satisfy creep limits and minimize the thermal conductive resistance across the tube wall.
