    Abstract

    Constraint effect plays an important role in assessing the stress field and the growth rate of creep crack in components under high temperature. The mismatched modified boundary layer (MMBL) model is extended to creep crack in this paper. For the MMBL model, the Q-parameters for different mismatch factors are studied under different T-stresses. The variation of the dimensionless T-stress in creep zone is given. The variations of open stresses with creep time for different mismatch factors are presented under different T-stresses. The comparisons of Q-parameter between homogeneous material and mismatched materials are made. The influences of mismatch factor on the constraint parameter are discussed. The influence of creep exponent on the open stress is also discussed.
