Specimens from three casts of Type 316 steel creep tested at temperatures between 550 and 675°C and with failure times varying from a few hundred hours to about nine years have been examined metallographically. Long term (up to 80,000h) ageing data are reported in the form of TTP diagrams and an attempt is made to relate the observed microstructures with creep rupture properties. © 1979.
