Abstract:

A method of including temperature and time effects in the determination of allowable stresses for structures that operate at elevated temperatures is presented. Creepbuckling and permanent structural deformation are considered, as well as the static, or short-time properties of the material at elevated temperature. Results are obtained in a form that can be used for preliminarydesign weight estimation. Recommendations are made regarding research needed to form a basis for structural design at elevated temperatures. Author
