Effects of cycle type and coating on the TMF lives of a single crystal nickel based gas turbine blade alloy
This paper analyses the cycle-specific stress response of the single crystal, nickel-based alloy SRR99 in uncoated and aluminide coated conditions. The number of cycles required for initiating microcracks is measured by means of a computer vision system. Various modes of crack initiation and crack growth are observed and correlated with the TMF (thermo-mechanical fatigue) cycle type. The differences in TMF lives are discussed in terms of the materials and TMF parameters.
