ELEVATED-TEMPERATURE MECHANICAL BEHAVIOR OF A CARBON-MANGANESE PRESSURE VESSEL STEEL
The short-time effects of stress and temperature on the mechanical properties of a carbon-manganese pressure vessel steel were investigated using room- and elevated-temperature tensile tests and short-time creep-rupture tests. The tensile test results indicated that strain aging effects were not observed in the temperature range 1100 F to 1250 F. Analysis of the creep-rupture data, in the range 1150 F to 1250 F, by the Larson-Miller method using the procedures of Manson and Mendelson provided a value of 20.7 for the material constant, C. In the temperature and stress regime studied, a linear relationship was observed between log(stress) and log(time-to-rupture). Fractographic analyses revealed a common fracture mode in all specimens tested. The fracture mode is described as an intermediate type, containing features of both transgranular and intergranular fracture.
