Abstract

A new finite element model of the small punch creep test is described. The material constitutive relationship for creep considered is a simple Norton power law: in this study the exponent in the power law is varied for each element to simulate the random behaviour of creep. The influence of this random variation, and the effect of the friction factor between the punch and specimen, on the deformation and stress field has been investigated.
