This work is to address the creep analysis for components at elevated temperatures based on isochronous stress-strain curve and the elastic-perfectly plastic material model through numerical analyses. Numerical results presented that the creep deformation is very sensitive to the target inelastic strain chosen for analysis. A small inelastic strain, corresponding to a small yield stress, can cause very conservative result for the case studied. Moreover, the target inelastic strain, corresponding to the minimum inelastic strain along with the given path, is different from each other for various internal pressures.
