AbstractThis article describes how a creep equation can be applied to predict the deformation behaviour of polycrystalline materials at high homologous temperatures, subjected to variable loading conditions common to engineering applications. The theoretical prediction has been successfully tested with experimental observations made on ice. The paper also discusses the successful application of the proposed analytical expression to describe the experimentally observed dynamic response of polycrystalline ice. An explanation of the physical processes that take place during the deformation of multigrained materials at high temperatures is presented.
