AbstractThe low cycle fatigue (LCF) characteristics of nickel-based single crystal (SC) superalloy have been experimentally and numerically investigated. The effects of crystallographic orientation, load ratio and stress concentration are studied. In order to model the effect of crystallographic orientation, a new orientation factor, which is relevant to the yield strength, is constructed. On the other hand, a new asymmetrical loading factor is introduced to describe the effect of load ratio. The LCF model for SC superalloy smooth specimen is established with these new damage parameters. The effect of the strain gradient on the LCF life of SC superalloy is further studied, which is applied to the evaluation of the LCF life of SC superalloy notched specimen. The LCF model proposed is validated by the experimental data of SC superalloy DD3 and PWA1480.

Abstract In this paper, a single crystal (SC) partition model, consisting of primary grains and grain defects, is proposed to simulate the weakening effect of grain defects generated at geometric discontinuities of SC materials. The plastic deformation of SC superalloy is described with the modified yield criterion, associated flow rule and hardening law. Then a bicrystal model containing only one group of misoriented grains under uniaxial loading is constructed and analyzed in the commercial fi...

Abstract Dwell-fatigue tests and variable strain rate tensile tests followed by cycling tests were performed using 〈0 0 1〉-oriented specimens made of a first-generation Ni-based single crystal superalloy. A short thermal jump from the nominal temperature of 1050 to 1200 °C was introduced along the lifetime of dwell-fatigue experiments and at the beginning of tensile tests. A fine γ′ precipitation occurred in the γ matrix upon such event which induced a large transient strengthening effect on the...

Abstract Many low cycle fatigue (LCF) experiments of a second generation single crystal (SC) nickel-base superalloy and its thin plate with a hole are carried out to investigate the effects of crystallographic orientation and stress concentration on the LCF life. The local strain approach and two kinds of modified anisotropic models we proposed are employed to predict the fatigue lives for the SC superalloy and its thin plate with a hole. The results show that the LCF lives of the SC superalloy ...

The prediction of the viscoplastic behavior of nickel-based single crystal superalloys remains a challenging issue due to the complex loadings encountered in aeronautical engine components such as high pressure turbine blades. Under particular in-service conditions, these materials may experience temperature cycles which promote the dissolution of the strengthening γ′ phase of the material on (over)heating, and subsequent precipitation on cooling, leading to a transient viscoplastic behavior. Wi...

The deformation mechanisms of nickel-base single-crystal superalloys containing 3 wt.% Re (3Re) and without Re (0Re) were systematically investigated in the temperature range from room temperature to 900 degrees C. At all testing temperatures, the alloy 3Re showed higher stress amplitudes and longer fatigue lives. With increasing temperature, slip mode gradually changes from planar to wavy slip. Dislocation climb and cross-slip, even by-passing became dominant deformation mechanisms of the two a...

Strain-controlled low cycle fatigue (LCF) experiments of a second generation single crystal (SC) nickel-base superalloy are carried out to investigate the effect of crystallographic orientations on its LCF life. Further, the life modeling of the SC superalloy is considered by employing the modified Mucke’s anisotropic model. The results show that the LCF life of the SC superalloy has a strong crystallographic orientation dependence; the local strain approach fails to predict the fatigue life but...

Single crystal superalloys are now the best alloys to make blades and vanes in aero-engines and gas turbines due to their temperature capability, their creep and fatigue resistance. Their composition and microstructure are optimised by heat treatments but low cycle fatigue resistance is mostly controlled by the initiation and early growth of micro-cracks at casting pores. An enriched engineering damage model is proposed to describe micro-crack growth from pores with a process zone concept. Damag...

Abstract Effects of temperature (760 °C and 980 °C), crystallographic orientation ([0 0 1], [0 1 1] and [1 1 1]) and dwell types (tensile, compressive and balanced dwell type) on low cycle fatigue (LCF) of a Ni-based single crystal (SC) superalloy are experimentally investigated and modeled. Since the LCF behavior shows strong crystallographic orientation and dwell type dependences, corresponding accurate life models are needed for safe application in gas turbine components. The feasibility of s...

A model was developed for fatigue life prediction of nickel-based single crystal superalloy based on critical plane and cyclic damage accumulation.The slip plane with the maximum inelastic strain energy density was chosen as the critical plane of nickel-based single crystal superalloy which was subjected to the most serious damage.Based on the results of viscoplastic deformation analysis on slip systems,the relation between the fatigue life and the parameters of the critical plane such as the ma...

Abstract Fifteen multiaxial critical-plane fatigue damage parameters of isotropic metal materials are applied to the life evaluation of nickel-base single crystal superalloys. These parameters are classified into stress-, strain- and strain-energy parameters, and their predictive abilities are evaluated by 12 groups of single crystal fatigue data obtained from mainly an intermediate temperature range (500-760°C) where the slip deformation is the main damage mode. The results show that the strain...
