Abstract : 2000-HOUR CREEP TESTS WERE MADE ON 0.015-INCH ZIRCONIUM WIRE IN WATER AT TEMPERATURES RANGING FROM 400 DEG TO 600 DEG F. Values of secondary creep were determined and limiting creep stresses were obtained for creep rates of 0.1% and 1.0% in 1000 hours. Total elongation was measured after the test run of 2000 hours.
