These papers provide an authoritative state-of-the-art assessment of the major research and development programmes under-way in various centres active in this area throughout the world. This Proceedings volume therefore offers a timely survey of the new experimental, analytical and computational methods currently being used in areas ranging from the identification of creep mechanisms to the characterisation of engineering ceramics now being developed for advanced high temperature applications. Of special note is the major section devoted to the acquisition of long-term creep design data and to procedures for evaluating the useful remaining operational life of large-scale components in power stations and petrochemical plant. As a result of this comprehensive coverage, these Proceedings represent a valuable information source for scientists and engineers concerned with theoretical and practical problems in the field of deformation and failure of materials at elevated temperatures.
