Abstract Total strain-controlled creep-fatigue tests were performed for a directionally solidified Ni-based superalloy at 850 °C in air. Dwell times of 0, 1, 2, 3, 5, and 8 min were introduced at the tensile peak for each cycle. The results demonstrated that the fatigue life firstly decreased and then slightly increased with increasing dwell time. The fatigue life showed a minimum at a dwell time of 3 min. The initial softening rate was faster than the subsequent softening rate when dwell times of 1 and 2 min were used compared to the case with no dwell time. A compressive mean stress was produced by stress relaxation in the tensile dwell period. The reduction in the fatigue life was caused by a mixture of fatigue and creep deformation behaviors. However, the initial softening rate increased and a small amount of subsequent hardening occurred when 5 and 8 min of dwell times were applied. The higher compressive mean stress and a slight increase in the fatigue life for these samples of 5 and 8 min dwell times were attributed to a mixture of creep and plastic deformation. The change in the fatigue life with increasing dwell time was explained on the basis of the mechanical response, deformation mechanism, and fracture mechanism of the DZ445 superalloy.

Abstract Hot isostatically-pressed, nickel-based superalloy MAR-M247 was tested under fatigue and creep-fatigue conditions. Continuous cycling and cycling with 10 min tensile dwells in each cycle were applied in symmetrical strain control cycle with constant total strain amplitude at 900 °C in air. Cyclic hardening/softening curves, cyclic stress-strain curves and fatigue life curves were obtained. The introduction of tensile dwells resulted in lower fatigue life in total strain representation. ...

Abstract The present study reports on the creep-fatigue (CF) behavior of a ferritic bimodal 12Cr-ODS steel. The tests were performed in air at 550 °C and 650 °C by introducing hold-time at peak tensile, peak compressive and both peak tensile as well as compressive strains of ±0.5%. The symmetrical loops under pure fatigue/continuous cycling (CC) became asymmetrical upon introducing hold-time at either peak tensile or peak compressive strain. On the contrary, hold-time on both sides had no influe...

Abstract The aim of the present paper is to identify the effects of sampling locations and loading waveforms on high-temperature low-cycle fatigue (HTLCF) and creep-fatigue life of a forged and precipitation hardened nickel-based GH4169 superalloy. Both the deformation and failure mechanisms are considered here. It has been revealed that HTLCF and creep-fatigue life of specimens were influenced by inhomogeneous microstructures at different locations. Compared with the HTLCF tests, the presence o...

Abstract The purposes of the present work are to extend the previous energy-based model on the basis of strain energy density exhaustion and to estimate creep-fatigue endurance and accumulated damage using cycle-by-cycle concept in tension-hold-only tests. The nickel-based GH4169 superalloy at 650 °C is employed to fit material constants and to verify the prediction capacity of the present model under various loading conditions. The present model exhibits a higher accuracy than some existing mod...

Abstract Alloy 617 is a primary candidate material to be used in the next generation of nuclear power plants. Structural materials for these plants are expected to undergo creep and fatigue at temperatures as high as 950 °C. This study uses a hybrid-control creep-fatigue loading profile, as opposed to the traditional strain-controlled loading, to generate creep dominated failure. Qualitative and quantitative image analysis through SEM, EDS, and EBSD, is used to show that hybrid control testing i...

Abstract The relaxation properties of AEREX350 and Waspaloy were studied contrastively at temperatures ranging from 600 °C to 800 °C with the same initial stress 510 MPa. The relationship between the microstructure and relaxation properties was elucidated using scanning and transmission electron microscopy techniques. It was found that the relaxation limit and relaxation stability of the two alloys decreased obviously with the increase of temperature, but the relaxation stability of AEREX350 dec...

Abstract Total strain-controlled low cycle fatigue (LCF) tests of a nickel based superalloy were performed at 650 °C. Various hold times were introduced at the peak tensile strain to investigate the high-temperature creep-fatigue interaction (CFI) effects under the same temperature. A substantial decrease in fatigue life occurred as the total strain amplitude increased. Moreover, tensile strain holding further reduced fatigue life. The saturation phenomenon of holding effect was found when the h...

Abstract This study explores the effects of cooling rate after solution heat treatment on the high temperature/low stress (982 °C/200 MPa) creep properties of CM-247LC Nickel base superalloy. Cooling rate was controlled by blowing argon gas, air cooling, and furnace cooling, which, in turn, gave rise to corresponding cooling rates (from 1260 °C to 800 °C) of 18.7, 7.4, and 0.19 °C/s, respectively. The results indicated that higher cooling rate from the solution heat treatment temperature led to ...

Abstract High total strain-controlled creep-fatigue tests of 1.8% were performed for a directionally-solidified Ni-based superalloy, DZ445, at 900 °C in air. Dwell times of 0, 2, and 5 min. were introduced at the tensile peak strain for each cycle. Experimental results show a decrease in fatigue life with increasing dwell time. The significant cyclic softening is observed after the application of the dwell time. The mean compressive stress and large plastic-strain accumulation are produced due t...

Abstract In this study, the microstructure and nanoindentation creep behavior of IC10 directionally solidified superalloy repaired by laser surface re-melting combined with quasi-continuous-wave laser metal deposition were investigated in detail. It is found that the primary dendritic arm spacing in the deposition layers is far smaller than that in the substrate (400 μm). Along the deposition height direction, the primary dendritic arm spacing increases from 4.27 to 5.46 μm due to the decreases ...

Abstract Creep-fatigue interaction behavior of nickel-based single crystal superalloy was studied in an in-situ SEM platform at 900 °C. Dwell times of 15, 30, 60, 90, 120 s were introduced at the tensile peak stress of each cycle. Experimental results showed that the life cycles firstly decreased rapidly then slightly increased with the increasing dwell time, which was explained by the accumulated inelastic strain. Dislocation microstructure and inelastic strain were correlated for different dwe...

Abstract Although Cr-rich (Cr, M)23C6 (M = Fe, Mo) carbides as ineluctable precipitates dramatically affect the mechanical performances of advanced materials such as refractory steels and superalloys, their high-temperature material properties are difficult to be determined in experiments. In the present work, the first-principles method was applied to comprehensively investigate the phase stability and thermodynamic and temperature-dependent mechanical properties of Cr23-xMxC6 (M = Fe, Mo; x = ...

Abstract The low cycle fatigue and low cycle fatigue-creep behaviours of P92 steel with strain-control mode and fully inverse loading waveforms at the temperature of 630 °C were investigated. A typical cyclic softening behaviour of P92 steel was observed. As the hold time was introduced at the tensile peak and compressive valley strains, the failure cycle was reduced and the stress reduction became more obvious with the increasing hold time because of the improvement in creep deformation. Moreov...

Abstract Based on the tensile stress-dominated (strain ratio, R = e min / e max = 0 ) and compressive stress-dominated (R = ∞) low-cycle fatigue (LCF) of a first-generation directionally solidified Ni-based superalloy DZ445 at 900 °C, the paper investigated the contribution of tensile stress and compressive stress to the damage during LCF and creep-fatigue deformation. The results demonstrated that the fatigue life in the case of tensile stress-dominated LCF is about half of that in compressive ...
