The American Society for Testing Materials created this test standard to determine creep rates in metals. This test method analyses how well a material withstands creep crack growth at high temperatures under static or quasi-static loads. Test specimens that are used are pre-cracked. There are many factors that ASTM has considered and incorporated into the testing methods of this standard. Parameters such as temperature, creep crack growth rate, and geometry will affect the life of the test specimen during testing. ASTM outlines how to take valued measurements which can be used in engineering design.
