Abstract [en]

At high temperatures metallic materials behave in a viscous manner exemplified by strain rate dependence, stress relaxation and creep deformation. At low temperatures however, these effects are extremely small, and the behaviour is strain rate independent and shows no or very small relaxation effects. Finally there exists an intermediate region, in which the material behaviour is close to strain rate independent for high strain rates but at the same time shows time dependent inelastic effects, such as stress relaxation and creep. For IN792 this occurs at temperatures around 650 °C. The article describes the extension of a power-law viscoplastic model describing the behaviour of IN792 at 850 °C, also to describe the behaviour at 650 °C, by bounding the elastic-viscoplastic stress-space by a plastic yield surface. The model parameters have been estimated using data from creep test and tailored step relaxation tests, and the model fits well to both the step relaxation data aimed at resembling relevant component conditions and long term creep data. © 2003 Published by Elsevier B.V.

Abstract [en]

Gas turbines are used where large amounts of energy is needed, typically as engines in aircraft, ferries and power plants. From an efficiency point of view it is desirable to increase the service temperature as much as possible. One of the limiting factors is then the maximum allowable metal temperatures in the turbine stages, primarily in the blades of the first stage, that are exposed to the highest gas temperatures. Specially designed materials are used to cape with these severe conditions, such as the nickel base superalloy IN792. In order to be able to design the components for higher temperatures and tighter tolerances, a detailed understanding and computational models of the material behaviour is needed.

The models presented in this work have been developed with the objective of being physically well motivated, and with the intention of avoiding excessive numbers of parameters. The influence of the parameters should also be as easy as possible to interpret. The models are to describe the the behaviour of IN792, under conditions typically found for a gas turbine blade. Specifically the high- and intermediate- temperature isothermal modelling of IN792 have been addressed.

One main issue when characterising the material and calibrating the models is the use of relevant tests, that are representative of component conditions. Therefore isothermal tests with an eye on the typical environment of a turbine blade have been planned and performed.

Using numerical optimization techniques the material parameters for the isothermal behaviour of IN792 at 650°C and 850°C have been estimated. The good overall calibration results for these specific temperatures, using the presented modeling concept and nonstandard constitutive tests, suggests that the model can describe the behaviour of IN792 in gas turbine hot part applications.

Abstract [en]

The material parameters for two isothermal viscoplastic models with deliberately limited sets of material parameters have been estimated. The models are to describe the behaviour of the nickel based superalloy IN792 in a gas turbine hot part application. The models are based on a power law flow equation and the state variable used is backstress. The model calibration is done by least-squares optimization using non-standard constitutive tests that are aimed at describing relevant component conditions. The constitutive tests give information about the kinematic hardening effects for the backstress evolution equations, while secondary creep data provides stress versus inelastic strain rate information for the flow equation. All tests are uniaxial and isothermal. With the estimated parameter sets the models give relatively good fits to the data. The results suggest that the models can be used to describe the high temperature behaviour of IN792. ⌐ 2002 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
