The fatigue properties of Inconel 718 in long life region up to 108 cycles were investigated under rotating bending at room temperature and 500°C. The early propagation of a crack was suppressed by oxide induced crack closure. Consequently, fatigue strength was higher at 500°C than at room temperature. Surface fracture occurred at high stress levels and internal fracture occurred in long life region beyond 107 cycles at 500°C. Correspondingly, S-N curve at 500°C presented in a step-wise shape, compared to the conventional one-step shape at room temperature. Intergranular cracking was observed at the origins of internal fracture at 500°C.
