Life Prediction of Thermo-Mechanical Fatigue for Nickel Based Superalloy IN738LC
An experimental program has been carried out to address the thermo-mechanical fatigue life of the uncoated IN738LC nickel-base superalloy. High temperature isothermal Fatigue and out-of-phase(OP), in-phase(IP) TMF experiments in strain control were performed on superalloy materials. Temperature interval of 450-850 was applied to thermo-mechanical fatigue tests. The stress-strain response and the life cycle of the material were measured during the test. The plastic strain energy based life pediction models were applied to the stress-strain history effect on the thermo-mechanical fatigue lives.
