CRACK INITIATION AND CRACK GROWTH IN PM ASTROLOY UNDER HTLCF CONDITIONS
Selected data on the crack initiation and on the growth of cracks under high temperature low cycle fatigue conditions are presented for PM Astroloy, a disk material for application in aero - gas turbines. The crack initiation life and the life to failure are strongly influenced by several time dependent processes (oxidation, time dependent deformation, dynamic strain ageing), operating individually or simultaneously depending on the testing conditions. The crack growth data show a short crack behaviour up to crack sizes of the order of ten times the grain size, their growth data are, therefore, unconservative.
