Creep is one of the main engineering problems facing engineers dealing with high temperature components. These components have to be closely monitored, especially after serving 50% of their residual life. For many reason creep engineers has to use small material samples for creep assessments of these components. Many small creep test specimen types can be manufactured using these small material samples; this include the sup-size uniaxial creep test specimen and the pin loaded small creep test specimen. Considering the limitations and the difficulties associated with each testing method is another factor often taken in to account before choosing which specimen type can be used. Traditionally many of creep engineers tend to go for the sup-size uniaxial creep test specimen, because of it is similarity to the standard creep test specimen. However, this specimen type has some limitations; this is include the high possibility of misalignment during the loading application, and this is due to the small size of the specimen. The misalignment effect on the test results normally ignored which can lead to inaccurate results. This paper will be focusing on the misalignment effect on the sup-size uniaxial creep test specimen, and the one-bar and two-bar creep test specimens. Using different values of misalignment the creep results obtained from one-bar and two-bar specimens and the sup-size uniaxial creep test specimen will be compared. The P91 steel at 650°C, which is one of the high temperature materials, will be used for validation.
