Norton creep power law constants?

      Hello,nI?m trying to learn creep analysis in Ansys, and am currently working on deriving creep constants, specifically C1, C2, and C3 for the Norton Power Law. I understand that the equation is usually shown in 2 ways:nnepsdot = A * (sigma^n) * (t^m)nornepsdot = A * (sigma^n) * exp(-Q/RT)nnWhich form does Ansys use? I can?t seem to find an answer in any of the manuals or anywhere online. For example, I know solid works uses the first form, where C1 is A, C2 is n, and C3 is m. nThanksn
