An Experimental Study on Low Cycle Fatigue of Inconel 617 Super Alloy


Article Preview

Low cycle fatigue tests are performed on the Inconel 617 super alloy that be used for structural material of hot gas casing for gas turbine. The relations between strain energy density and number of cycles to failure are examined in order to predict the low cycle fatigue life of Inconel 617 super alloy. The lives predicted by strain energy methods are found to coincide with experimental data and results obtained from the Coffin-Manson method. And, the cyclic behavior of the Inconel 617 super alloy is characterized by cyclic hardening with increasing number of cycles.
