The ultimate objective of this research project is to develop creep damage constitutive equations for low Cr-Mo alloy and its weldment under low stress (0.2-0.4 yield stress,σ_Y). This paper summarizes a critical analysis on the cavity nucleation and growth and the deformation mechanisms and creep damage evolution characteristics at low stress with temperature ranging from 450 °C to 650 °C, in order to firmly establish the physical base for the theoretical constitutive modeling work. Moreover, it covers the influence of the stress level on the development of cavity nucleation and growth, leading to the final rupture, and proposes and discusses a new idea for failure criterion to be used in the constitutive equations under uni-axial stress state. This paper contributes to knowledge and the development of methodology.
