The effect of cold working on the creep rupture strength of Alloy617 was investigated. The creep rupture tests were conducted at temperatures of 700 to 800°C, under stresses from 100 to 350 MPa. At high stress conditions, the creep rupture time of the non-pre-strained samples are similar to those of the pre-strained samples. On the other hand, at low stress conditions, the creep rupture time of the pre-strained samples are longer than those of the non-pre-strained samples. The amount of precipitates near the grain boundaries in the pre-strained sample is higher than that in the non-pre-strained sample. Weak regions such as PFZ and recrystallization grains in the non-pre-strained sample are formed in the early stage of creep compared to the pre-strained sample. At low stress conditions, the precipitates near the grain boundaries in the pre-strained sample play an effective role to pin the grain boundaries and they delay the formation of the weak regions resulting in extension to the creep rupture time.
