The control of creep behaviour during service of reformer tubes made of HP-40 austenitic stainless steels is still limited by the knowledge of creep mechanisms in these alloys. Two different HP-40 alloys modified with a low-level addition ofNbwere studied. Creep testswere carried out at 980 and 1050 ◦C with different stress levels, in the range of 20–50MPa, and their resultswere plotted in a Norton-type diagram. Also, low strain rate tensile tests were performed at temperature of 950, 980 or 1000 ◦C. As low strain rate tensile tests showed a plateau at nearly constant stress for a given strain rate, they could be somehow linked with creep tests. Accordingly, tensile and creep results were plotted together on a Larson–Miller (LMP) diagram. The fracture modes of tensile and creep samples were investigated and the effect of different parameters such as sample dimensions, temperature and atmosphere, was also studied.
