Creep and creep recovery data are reported for pure tension of 2618-T61 aluminum alloy under variable temperature between 200° C and 230° C. Varying temperature experiments involved an abrupt temperature increase and a linearly increasing and decreasing temperature at a constant stress of 137.9 MPa (20 ksi). A temperature-compensated time by Sherby and Dorn was employed to represent the effect of temperature. A temperature-history-dependent theory using data from constant stress creep and creep recovery together with the apparent activation energy was used to predict the creep under variable temperature. The predictions agreed quite well with the observed data. The apparent activation energy of this alloy was found to be 49,000 cal/mole°K.
