Aluminium alloys 2419-T851, 2124-T851 and 7010-T7351 are candidates to succeed the current airframe alloy, RR58. In the present work, high precision constant stress creep curves have been obtained for alloys 2419-T851 and 7010-T7351 over an approximate stress range 100-400MPa at 373-463K. In the case of alloy 2419-T851, the creep curves recorded were predominantly primary in nature, alloy 7010-T7351 exhibited predominantly tertiary curves, while creep curves reported (2) for 2124-T851 showed an intermediate curve shape. These results have been analysed to allow comparisons to be made between conventional methods of creep data representation and a new approach, termed the theta Projection Concept.
