This paper outlines several procedures for developing allowable compressive stress rules in the creep regime (time dependent regime). The rules are intended for the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel codes (Sections I and VIII). The proposed rules extend the methodology presently outlined in Sections I, II-D, and VIII of the ASME code for temperatures below the creep regime into temperatures where creep is a consideration.
