The creep-rupture behavior of 34 capped end, thin-wall tubular specimens was correlated with results for 54 uniaxial tensile specimens in tests at 1350 F, 1500 F, and 1650 F. Basic tests established isotropy in creep-rupture properties as well as metallurgical stability for the material used in the study. Significant correlations of creep rate, rupture life, and rupture ductility were established for the cases of stress ratios 1/0 and 2/1 in the biaxial tension quadrant. Data from tests at 1500 F were evaluated for a statistical argument. This same material was subsequently utilized in a high temperature structures research program to be reported separately.
