Computational Analysis of Fatigue Crack Propagation at Elevated Temperature for IN718

Abstract:

Article Preview

Creep damage is an important failure factor of high-temperature alloy. The fatigue crack growth under elevated temperature of the material is investigated for life prediction. In this paper, the numerical simulation of the crack propagation in nickel-based super alloy, IN718, was presented. A modified creep damage model was employed to accumulate the creep damage under cyclic loading conditions. The numerical results exhibit a reasonable agreement in the comparison with the experimental data. The cohesive zone approach, combining with the extended finite element method, has the ability to simulate the creep-fatigue crack propagation even for more complex loading conditions and specimen geometries.
