© 2016 Elsevier Ltd. In this paper, the high temperature cyclic and relaxation behaviour of Ni-based superalloy Haynes 282 is investigated. Low-cycle fatigue (LCF) tests with and without hold time have been performed at two elevated temperatures, 650 and 730 °C. The test results are presented and analysed with respect to the cyclic behaviour and the stress relaxation behaviour. Based on this analysis, a Chaboche type of elasto-viscoplastic material model is formulated and calibrated with respect to the cyclic experimental data. Furthermore, the effect of the scatter, observed in the initial yield stresses of the LCF tests, is considered in the calibration of the material model. Finally, a Golos-Ellyin strain energy density fatigue criterion is used to predict the fatigue life and how the scatter in the LCF tests influences the predicted fatigue lives is studied. Moreover, to account for the reduction in fatigue life due to stress relaxation, a frequency modification of the Golos-Ellyin fatigue criterion is proposed and evaluated.
