The creep limit ([R.sub.mT][10.sup.4]) ([R.sub.mT]--creep rupture strength) was determined via extrapolation.
The creep limit to tensile strength ratio is considered to be a creep-resistance characteristic of steels [17, 18].
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.
--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.
