THE work described in this paper is part of a programme concerned with the plastic, creep, and relaxation properties of metals under complex stress systems at elevated temperatures.which is being carried out in the Engineering Division of the N.P.L. It comprises data on the criterion of departure from elastic behaviour, of a low carbon steel over the temperature range 20–550 deg. C, and of an aluminium alloy over the temperature range 20–200 deg. C, and the creep properties under complex stress systems of the low carbon steel at 350 deg. C, and of the aluminium alloy at 150 and 200 deg. C.
