Experimental Study of the High Temperature Mechanical Behaviors of TLP Bonding of Two Ni-Base Single Crystals
In this paper, the mechanical behavior of Ni-base single crystals joint created by TLP bonding is presented. Experimental study has been performed on the TLP single crystal under loading conditions of static uniaxial tension, creep and Three-points-bending (T-P-B) at temperature of 850 °C. Specimens made of the base material, Ni-base single crystal specimens without bonding, were also tested under the same loading conditions. The mechanical behaviors of TLP single crystal is compared to the behaviors of base material. It was found that the static strength of the TLP specimens with the boundary normal to the tensile direction was 63% of the strength of the base material. The creep strength and the fracture ductile strength was more than 57% and 55% of that of the single crystal base material, respectively. The macro and micro graphs of fracture surfaces of specimens indicated that the fracture modes of the samples were brittle fracture.
