Available equipment initially developed for welding research studies was used to investigate the creep-rupture behavior of AISI type 347 stainless steel in a very-high-temperature range from 62 to 86 percent of the solidus. Stress applications from 900 to 28,000 psi gave rupture times from a fraction of a second to several hundred seconds with thousandfold variations of minimum creep rate. Results could be presented by conventional means. Data scatter on a Monkman-Grant plot was typical. Correlation and extrapolation procedures developed by Larson-Miller, Manson-Haferd, Dorn, Korchynsky, and Conrad for conventional long-time results were found to be applicable, with preference being given to the Manson-Haferd procedures.
