Mechanical properties must be evaluated at high temperatures to predict high-temperature deformation and fracture behavior, since high-temperature properties differ greatly from those at room temperature. A high-temperature uniaxial tensile test, a representative high-temperature test, is generally used, but it has the limitation of obtaining merely the average material properties. Recently an advanced method for evaluating tensile properties has been developed: the instrumented indentation test (IIT), which simultaneously applies a load and measures displacement. Here we use instrumented indentation testing to evaluate the flow properties (yield strength, ultimate tensile strength, etc.) of heat-resistant steel at high temperature. The contact-area determination algorithm and representative stress-representative strain approach are applied for high temperatures. We compare our experimental results to those of conventional high-temperature uniaxial tensile testing to assess the high-temperature performance of the instumented indentation test.
