Time- and cycle-dependent crack propagation in Haynes 282
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2016
Haynes 282 is a promising superalloy candidate for several high-temperature applications in both aero and land-based gas turbine engines. To study the crack growth behaviour under time-dependent conditions relevant to such applications, a test program was carried out at room temperature up to 700 °C with conditions ranging from pure cyclic to sustained tensile loading. At 650 °C and high stress intensity factors the crack growth was fully time-dependent for dwell-times of 90 s and longer. At lower stress intensities, the behaviour was mainly controlled by the cyclic loading, even under dwell conditions. The behaviour under dwell-fatigue conditions was well described by a liner superposition model. The main crack growth occurred transgranularly at room temperature and there was a transition in cracking behaviour from cycle dependent transgranular growth to time-dependent intergranular propagation at dK=45 MPa m^0.5 for the high temperature tests. No effect of cyclic frequency could be observed at room temperature, and at lower frequencies the crack growth rate increased with temperature.
