Creep and fatigue interaction behavior in Sanicro 25 heat resistant austenitic stainless steel
2015 (English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
Sanicro 25 is a newly developed advanced high strength heat resistant austenitic stainless steel. The material shows good resistance to steam oxidation and flue gas corrosion, and has higher creep rupture strength than other austenitic stainless steels available today. It is an excellent candidate for superheaters and reheaters for advanced ultra-super critical power plants with efficiency higher than 50 %. This paper provides a study on the creep-fatigue interaction behavior of Sanicro 25 at 700 °C. Two strain ranges, 1 % and 2 %, and three dwell times, 0, 10 and 30 minutes, were used. The influences of dwell time on the cyclic deformation behavior and life time has been evaluated. Due to stress relaxation the dwell time causes a larger plastic strain range compared to the tests without dwell time. The results also show that the dwell time leads to a shorter fatigue life for the lower strain range, but has no or small effect on the life for the higher strain range. Fracture investigations show that dwell times result in more intergranular cracking. With use of the electron channeling contrast image (ECCI) technique, the influences of dwell time on the cyclic plastic deformation, precipitation behavior, recovery phenomena and local plasticity exhaustion have also been studied.
