Any one of a number of methods of measuring creep, for example, by subjecting a material to a constant stress or deforming it at a constant rate.



Related Terms

FATIGUE LIFE

The number of applied repeated stress cycles a material can endure before failure.

FATIGUE LIMIT

The maximum stress that a material can endure for an infinite number of beam of charged particles.

FATIGUE STRENGTH

The maximum stress a material can endure for a given number of stress cycles without breaking. Also known as endurance strength.

C CHART

A quality-control chart showing number of defects in subgroups of constant size; gives information concerning quality level, its variability, and evidence of assignable causes of variation.

DIELECTRIC STRENGTH

A measure of the ability of an insulating material to withstand electric stress (voltage) without failure. Fluids with high dielectric strength (usually expressed in volts or kilovolts) are good electrical insulators. (ASTM Designation D 877.)

ALTERNATING STRESS

A stress produced in a material by forces which are such that each force alternately acts in opposite directions.

SPALLING

The breaking off of the surface refractory material as a result of internal stresses.

YIELD STRENGTH

The stress at which a material exhibits a specified inciting permanent set.

BREAKING STRESS

The stress required to fracture a material whether by compression, tension, or shear.

PLANE STRESS

A state of stress in which two of the principal stresses are always parallel to a given plane and are constant in the normal direction.
