Creep Testing

Creep testing, also referred to as cold flow, refers to how a material slowly moves or changes shape when a load is applied. Measuring Creep typically involves applying high temperatures to a sample for long periods of time while also applying the load, so the use of Environmental Chambers along with a test frame with highly accurate speed controls is common for this type of test. Creep testing is often performed on metals that are designed to work in high stress or high temperature environments such as engine parts and related components.
