High cycle and very high cycle fatigue (VHCF) crack initiation mechanism of TC17 alloy joint with heterogeneous microstructures in FZ has been studied at the stress ratio of 0.1. Intrinsic deficiencies of slip deformation in β grains with few martensites and cracking coarse grain boundary between prior β grains with martensite colonies account for the high cycle fatigue (HCF) of joints. The average diameter of intergranular welding pores regarding VHCF crack nucleation is measured to be ∼36 μm. The driving force governing the crack nucleation from intrinsic deficiencies in HCF to porosity defects in VHCF is ∼1.66 MPa·m1/2.
