Results of inspection creep damage by magnetic hysteresis measurements on Cr-Mo steel are presented. It is shown that structure sensitive parameters such as coercivity, remanence and hysteresis loss are sensitive to the creep damage. Previous metallographic studies have shown that creep changes the microstructure of the material by introducing voids, dislocations, and grain boundary cavities. As cavities develop, dislocations and voids move out to the grain boundaries; therefore the total pinning sources for domain wall motion are reduced. This, together with the introduction of demagnetization field due to the cavities, results in the decrease of both coercivity and remanence. Numerical computations with a modified Jiles-Atherton model are presented which are consistent with the proposed mechanisms
