Creep Testing Machines

Creep  Testing Machines are used to understand the creep of materials and determine which type can do the job better, which is important when making and

designing materials for everyday uses. They most commonly test the creep of alloys and plastics for the understanding of their properties and advantages of one material’s

use over another.

Description

Creep Testing Machines

Creep is the tendency of a material to change form over time after facing high temperature and stress.

Creep increases with temperature and it is more common when a material is exposed to high temperatures for a long time or at the melting point of the material.

Creep  Testing  Machines are used to understand the creep of materials and determine which type can do the job better, which is important when making and

designing materials for everyday uses. They most commonly test the creep of alloys and plastics for the understanding of their properties and advantages of one

material’s use over another.

A Creep Testing Machines measure the alteration of a material after it has undergone stresses.

Engineers use Creep Testing Machines to determine the stability and behaviour of a material when put through ordinary stresses.

They determine how much strain (load) an object can handle under pressure, so engineers and researchers are able to determine what materials to use.

The device generates a creep time-dependent curve by calculating the steady rate of creep in reference to the time it takes for the material to change.

Measuring Creep typically involves applying high temperatures to a sample for long periods of time while also applying the load, so the use of Environmental

Chambers along with a test frame with highly accurate speed controls is common for this type of test. Creep testing is often performed on metals that are designed

to work in high stress or high temperature environments such as engine parts and related components.

The “Creep Test” is performed on a specimen. In simple terms, the specimen is heated up to a temperature between 300°C and 1200°C

depending on material.

Once the temperature set-point is reached, a constant load is applied to exert a longitudinal force on the grain structure of the material.

The load is maintained for the period of the test or until the specimen ruptures.

During the test, data is continuously monitored and recorded to qualify the stability of the temperatures, load and specimen elongation.
