Primary Creep Under Nonconstant Load

Application ID: 12399

In this model example, you will study the creep behavior of material under non-constant loading. You will model the primary creep using a Norton-Bailey law and study the difference between the time hardening and the strain hardening methods available in COMSOL Multiphysics.

The model is taken from NAFEMS Understanding Non-Linear Finite Analysis Through Illustrative Benchmarks. The load consist of a uniaxial and a biaxial stepped load. The step in the load occurs at after a half of the full study time. The value of interest is the creep strain variation along the time. The computed solutions are compared with analytical solution given in the reference.
