Modeling of cyclic thermo-elastic-plastic behaviour of P91 steel

Piotr Sulich, Władysław Egner, Stanisław Mroziński, Halina Egner
Thermomechanical low cycle fatigue behaviour of P91 steel used in power industry applications
has been extensively investigated. The constitutive model of Armstrong-Frederick,
extended with temperature rate effects, has been applied to describe the behaviour of the
thermo-elastic-plastic material. The proposed model has been successfully implemented in
simulation of low cycle fatigue of the examined steel in two different temperatures.
