Description/Abstract

The long crack threshold behaviour of polycrystalline Udimet 720 has been investigated. Faceted crack growth is seen near threshold when the monotonic crack tip plastic zone is contained within the coarsest grain size. At very high load ratios R(=P[min]/P[max]) it is possible for the monotonic crack tip plastic zone to exceed the coarsest grain size throughout the entire crack growth regime and non-faceted structure insensitive crack growth is then seen down to threshold. Intrinsic threshold values were obtained for non-faceted and faceted crack growth using a constant K[max], increasing K[min], computer controlled load shedding technique (K is stress intensity factor).
