Strain based approach for reliable assessment of creep behavior is employed for creep data generated for different microstructural conditions as well as obtained from literature for 2.25Cr-1Mo steel. The influence of thermal ageing and pre-strain on the shape of creep curves has been studied. Analysis of data revealed that irrespective of initial microstructures, thermal ageing increases the tendency to soften but not the pre-strain. Softening due to carbide coarsening thus appears to be the dominant mechanism of creep. Based on this, a strain based approach for creep life assessment was developed. A fairly accurate prediction of creep life up to 5% creep is achieved using eight materials constants extracted from the creep curves of steel having similar initial microstructure. The limitation and reliability of the approach used to assess creep behavior of service-exposed steels have been discussed.
