Determination of Creep in Compression of Refractory Products - Test Method - BS EN 993-9:1997


Methods of test for dense shaped refractory products. Determination of creep in compression.


Creep in compression is the isothermal deformation of a compressive stressed product as a function of time.


A test piece is submitted to a constant load and thenheated under specified conditions to a given temperature. The deformation of the test piece is recorded and the percentage change evaluated as a function of time.
