Creep and Creep Rupture of Metals is devoted to the fundamental description of the phenomenon of creep which occurs widely in high-temperature deformation of metals. Special attention is paid to the analysis of long-term strength, which characterizes the stress at which the metal does not fail after a predetermined time. The author details experimental and theoretical results obtained by Soviet and Russian scientists that are absent in currently available publications and demonstrates analytical methods and approaches to achieve long term strength in Metals.
