Abstract

Creep is a time dependent, temperature-sensitive mechanical response of a material in the form of continuous deformation under constant load or stress. To study the creep properties of a given material, the load/stress and temperature must be controlled while measuring strain over time. The present study describes how a spark plasma sintering (SPS) apparatus can be used as a precise tool for measuring compressive creep of materials. Several examples for using the SPS apparatus for high-temperature compressive creep studies of metals and ceramics under a constant load are discussed. Experimental results are in a good agreement with data reported in literature, which verifies that the SPS apparatus can serve as a tool for measuring compressive creep strain of materials.
