Abstract: A cellular automaton model is proposed to describe the creep behaviour of Ti alloys. The technique is a well-known mathematical method that has been recently used to simulate the mechanical behaviour of materials identified by a discrete number of sites, called cells, organised in a two- or three-dimensional lattice. The creep behaviours of various types of microstructures with different crystallographic textures were simulated. The results can explain the large discrepancy obtained in the creep responses of the titanium samples subjected to similar loading conditions.
