The development of model techniques for prediction of creep strains applied to steam turbine casings
Bellamy, R.A. (1973) The development of model techniques for prediction of creep strains applied to steam turbine casings. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
Because of the long service expected from steam power plant it is not practicable to obtain creep data from prototype installations to assist design against excessive creep. Model techniques, however, allow accelerated creep testing in a laboratory environment, which will produce the required creep information in a period of weeks rather than years.
