High Temperature Durability of DS200+Hf Alloy

Abstract : The anisotropy in mechanical behavior of the directionally solidified DS200+Hf alloy and the damage mechanisms have been investigated between 650°C and1100°C. Single-crystalline specimens of the same alloy have also been used to get a better understanding of the anisotropy in mechanical properties and durability. Tension, creep, low-cycle fatigue (LCF), dwell-fatigue and crack propagation tests have been performed and analyzed by SEM observations to better understand the damage modes in this alloy. At 650°C, a considerable creep (and LCF) life anisotropy is observed while almost no anisotropy remains at 1100°C in creep. The γ rafting is mainly responsible for this decrease in creep anisotropy and for theincrease in creep rate in dwell-fatigue. An intergranular fracture mode has been observed for ail kind of solicitation along transverse direction, mainly due to the presence of grain boundary particles such as carbides. These carbides are also the main crack initiation sites in LCF at 650°C and at 900°C. At high temperature (900°C), oxidation not only controls the crack initiation mechanisms by inducing surface carbides cracking, but it also affects the crack propagation through a combined localized γ depletion and crack tip blunting, leading ove ra li to a higher crack propagation threshold. Such a behavior is not observed in high vacuum and surface carbides are no more the main crack initiation sites. lt is shown that at low temperature during transverse creep testing (750°C), highly misoriented grain boundaries, having one grain favorably oriented for single slip and lattice rotation, are the most critical ones.
