The creep testing software and hardware package scans each test machine regularly to read thermocouples, extensometers and crack growth voltages if available; store them on a logarithmic time scale; check test start and termination activities. The test types available are stress rupture test, creep strain test and creep crack growth.

For each test the following information is recorded in the header file where appropriate: File name; specimen serial number, batch number, material specification; test start date, start time, heating time, soaking time, test elapsed time; specimen dimensions, cross sectional area, stress required; nominal test temperature, soak temperature limits, test temperature limits.
