Additive creep rate model has been developed to predict creep strain-time behavior of materials important to engineering creep design of components for high temperature applications. The model has two additive formulations: the first one is related to sine hyperbolic rate equation describing primary and secondary creep deformation based on the evolution of internal stress with strain/time, and the second defines the tertiary creep rate as a function of tertiary creep strain. In order to describe creep data accurately, tertiary creep rate relation based on MPC-Omega methodology has been appropriately modified. The applicability of the model has been demonstrated for tempered martensitic plain 9Cr-1Mo steel for different applied stresses at 873 K. Based on the observations, a power law relationship between internal stress and applied stress has been established for the steel. Further, a higher creep damage accumulation with increasing life fraction has been observed at low stresses than those obtained at high stresses.
