Effect of ratchet strain on fatigue and creep-fatigue strength of Mod.9Cr-1Mo steel

Ando, Masanori ; Isobe, Nobuhiro*; Kikuchi, Koichi*; Enuma, Yasuhiro*

The effect of ratcheting deformation on fatigue and creep-fatigue life in Mod.9Cr-1Mo steel was investigated. Uniaxial fatigue and creep-fatigue testing with superimposed strain were performed to evaluate the effect of ratcheting deformation on the failure cycle. In the fatigue tests with superimposed strain at 550$$^{circ}$$C, slight reductions of failure lives were observed. All of the numbers of cycles to failure in the fatigue tests with superimposed strain were within a factor of 1.5 of that of the fatigue test without superimposed strain at 550$$^{circ}$$C. The apparent relationship between failure cycles and testing parameters was not observed. It was assumed that suppression of mean stress generation by cyclic softening reduces the effect of ratcheting strain. In the creep-fatigue tests with superimposed strain, test results indicated that the accumulated stain was negligible.
