Abstract

The study involves the design and fabrication of a machine in order to perform creep test of various materials being used in high temperature applications. Maximum applied load on the specimen can be 10kN and tests could be carried out at maxi-mum temperature of 700°C. Machine uses lever loading mechanism for load application and measures extension up to 55% of gauge length of the specimen. All components were designed and stress analysis was performed. Components were fabricated separately and then assembled. The machine was able to successfully perform tensile creep tests for different materials at various temperatures according to ASTM standard E-139-06.
