Development of new engineering equipment is more often then not impeded by lack of suitable material with physical properties capable of fulfilling the rigid requirements im- . posed by the new advanced designs. The construction of power equipment, in particular, would benefit greatly if new alloys were made available that would allow the use of higher temperatures and yet retain their strength and creep resistance under high stresses. This challenge has not gone unheeded for great strides have been made in recent years in developing heat and creep resisting alloys, but mainly by the tedious process of "trial and error". A knowledge of the basic facts underlying the phenomena of creep would offer a means by which a more positive and direct approach could be made.
