One of the most applied materials to manufacture critical components in power plants are martensitic steels due to their high creep and oxidation resistance. In this work, the fracture life of martensitic steels that are designed based on the P92 standard is modeled in order to better understand the relation between its service life and its composition and its thermal treatment. This feature is usually studied by performing creep tests, although carrying out tests of this type are really cost and time consuming. To solve this problem, a multivariate analysis and a training-testing model methodology were performed using a dataset formed by 344 creep tests with the final goal of obtaining a model to predict the fracture life of the material based on several nonlinear techniques like support vector machines and artificial neural networks. Once the models were defined based on predicting with the better generalization capability to cover the whole scenario of the problem, those were compared ...
