Abstract

Ultrasonic fatigue tests of plain specimens with different grain sizes were carried out for Ni-base super alloy, Inconel 718, in ambient air in order to investigate the effect of grain size on fatigue properties. Fatigue strength was increased with decrease in grain size. The increase in fatigue strength by refining grain size was mainly caused by the suppression of crack initiation. That is, the effect of grain size on crack growth rate was hardly recognized, though crack morphology was rougher in the specimen of larger grain, meaning that the crack growth in the large-grained specimens was suppressed by roughness induced crack closure. On the other hand, however, more flat facets caused by twin boundary cracking were observed in the large-grained specimens, which inversely led to crack growth acceleration.
