In this paper, the FE damage analysis method, proposed in Part I, is applied to simulate creep crack growth in six different types of cracked specimens of 316H at 550. °C. Comparison with experimental results shows that simulated creep crack growth rates agree well with experimental data. Shortcomings of the present method to predict creep crack initiation is briefly discussed.
