AbstractFour microstructural variants of ATI 718Plus® alloy (718Plus) have been investigated to elucidate the effects of grain size, precipitate size, morphology, and phase fraction (δ and γ′) on mechanical properties such as low cycle fatigue (LCF) life, fatigue crack growth rate (FCGR) properties, and dwell FCGR behavior at both 649°C and 704°C under 100 s dwell and nondwell conditions. Similar tests have also been performed on Waspaloy in two comparative microstructural conditions. LCF test results demonstrate that all four microstructural conditions of 718Plus have superior life compared with Waspaloy under all investigated test conditions. FCGR results show that, at both test temperatures, all microstructural conditions of 718Plus and Waspaloy exhibit identical behavior in the steady-state regime, except that 718Plus exhibits a much higher threshold stress intensity (ΔK TH). However, the dwell FCGR results show that Waspaloy displays better steady-state crack growth resistance under dwell conditions. However, with a thermal exposed precipitate microstructure, 718Plus shows considerable improvement in this response.
