Creep law data for PA66 using Nastran CREEP card

Creep law data for PA66 using Nastran CREEP card


I am looking for some data covering the generic Pa66 (unfilled) and possibly PA66 (13% GF filled) so that we can do some Nastran creep analysis.  The CREEP card in nastran SOL 106 requires a lot of parameter input.

The loading situation is RT (20 deg C), constant load for 5yrs (say around 45,000 hrs), stress range is up to 50MPa, around 2-3% strain.

I cannot seem to find any strain_time data or any Nastran CREEP card entries for PA66 materials, can anyone help?

This is the public-domain source with the most creep data:
