The study focuses on the problem of determination of low-cycle fatigue properties for the chosen group of creep-resistant steels used in the power and chemical industries. It tries to find the parameter which would describe well the fatigue life and take into account mechanical loads and temperature. The results of LCF tests have been presented in the paper. New parameter P has been introduced. This parameter joins a plastic strain range, a stress range and temperature. The fatigue life has been predicted versus parameter P. The comparison of the predicted and observed values of fatigue life shows the agreement between these values. The method of fatigue life prediction formulated in this way is expected to describe the behavior of materials under thermo-mechanical fatigue.
