Oxidation is a life-limiting factor for material durability. In this study, constant-load creep tests are conducted on modified 9Cr-1Mo steel (F91) with an oxidation-resistant coating, MCrAlY, to evaluate the coating effect on the creep behavior. The creep strain vs. time curves are compared with that of the uncoated material under constant-load conditions. The previously developed deformation-mechanism based true-stress (DMTS) model and the composite stress rule are applied to analyze the creep data for the coated material coupons. This way, the effect of coating and the contributions from material-intrinsic deformation mechanisms, i.e., intragranular dislocation glide and climb, as well as grain boundary sliding, are all delineated quantitatively. The model is shown to describe well the entire creep deformation process consisting of primary, steady-state, and tertiary creep of the F91 with MCrAlY coating.
