To capture the mechanical response of Ni-based materials, creep deformation and rupture experiments are typically performed. Long term tests, mimicking service conditions at 10,000 h or more, are generally avoided due to expense. Phenomenological models such as the classical Kachanov-Rabotnov (Rabotnov, 1969, Creep Problems in Structural Members, North-Holland, Amsterdam; Kachanov, 1958, "Time to Rupture Process Under Creep Conditions," Izv. Akad. Nauk SSSR, Otd. Tekh. Nauk, Mekh. Mashin., 8, pp. 26-31) model can accurately estimate tertiary creep damage over extended histories. Creep deformation and rupture experiments are conducted on IN617 a polycrystalline Ni-based alloy over a range of temperatures and applied stresses. The continuum damage model is extended to account for temperature dependence. This allows the modeling of creep deformation at temperatures between available creep rupture data and the design of full-scale parts containing temperature distributions. Implementation of the Hayhurst (1983, "On the Role of Continuum Damage on Structural Mechanics," in Engineering Approaches to High Temperature Design, Pineridge, Swansea, pp. 85-176) (tri-axial) stress formulation introduces tensile/compressive asymmetry to the model. This allows compressive loading to be considered for compression loaded gas turbine components such as transition pieces. A new dominant deformation approach is provided to predict the dominant creep mode over time. This leads to development of a new methodology for determining the creep stage and strain of parametric stress and temperature simulations over time.
