Abstract

This paper reports the development of finite element software for creep damage analysis. Creep damage deformation and failure of high temperature structure is a serious problem for power generation and it is even more technically demanding under the current increasing demand of power and economic and sustainability pressure. This paper primarily consists of three parts: 1) the need and the justification of the development of in-house software; 2) the techniques in developing such software for creep damage analysis; 3) thirdly, the validation of the finite element software conducted under plane stress, plane strain, axisymmetric, and 3 dimensional cases. This paper contributes to the computational creep damage mechanics in general.
