Modeling Creep Behavior in ANSYS Mechanical and Mechanical APDLCreep deformation is irreversible, time-dependent progressive distortion at stress levels less than yield. Its effect is usually only significant at elevated temperatures, but many devices such as steam turbines, jet engines, and heat exchangers operate at temperatures greater than the minimum temperature required for the onset of creep behavior. Accurate simulation of creep behavior is essential for predicting and preventing in-service failure of critical structural components. ANSYS Mechanical and Mechanical MAPDL have a full library of industry accepted creep laws as well as the curve fitting tools necessary to generate the coefficients required for each law. These capabilities have been enhanced in ANSYS 14.0.
