異材溶接継手構造モデルに対する熱疲労試験について述べる。JSFR設計においては、IHXとSGにフェライト-オーステナイト異材溶接継手が発生する。JSFRの機器では、クリープ疲労が最も重要な破損様式であるが、異材溶接技手に対するクリープ疲労強度評価法は確立されていない。評価法を開発し検証するためには、構造物試験が必要である。そこで、周方向に改良9Cr-1Mo鋼-SUS304の異材溶接継手を有する厚肉円筒に対する熱疲労試験を行った。これらの鋼種の熱膨張係数は大きく異なることから、中間にNi基合金がバタリング溶接された。試験後の解体検査で、SUS304側熱影響部と改良9Cr-1Mo鋼側熱影響部に深いき裂が観察された。SUS304母材表面には亀甲状のき裂が多数見られた。有限要素解析に基づく疲労損傷評価の結果、最大の疲労損傷はSUS304側熱影響部に発生すると評価された。また、SUS304母材部の疲労損傷も大きく評価された。これらの評価結果は、実験結果とよく一致する。しかし、改良9Cr-1Mo鋼側熱影響は、比較的小さい疲労損傷と評価されたにもかかわらず、深いき裂が観察された。この原因を究明するため、数値解析と金属組織観察を実施した。

This paper describes a thermal fatigue test on a structural model with a dissimilar welded joint. In the present design of JSFR, there may be dissimilar welded joints between ferritic and austenitic steels especially in IHX and SG. Creep-fatigue is one of the most important failure modes in JSFR components. However, the creep-fatigue damage evaluation method has not been established for dissimilar welded joint. To investigate the evaluation method, structural test will be needed for verification. Therefore, a thermal fatigue test on a thick-wall cylinder with a circumferential dissimilar welded joint between Mod.9Cr-1Mo steel and 304SS was performed. Since the coefficients of thermal expansion of these steels were significantly different, buttering layer of Ni base alloy was installed between them. After the completion of the test, deep cracks were observed at the HAZ in 304SS, as well as at HAZ in Mod.9Cr-1Mo steel. There were many tiny surface cracks in BM of 304SS. According to the fatigue damage evaluation based on the finite element analysis results, the largest fatigue damage was calculated at HAZ in 304SS. Large fatigue damage was also estimated at BM of 304SS. Fatigue cracks were observed at HAZ and BM of 304SS in the test, so that analytical results are in a good agreement with the observations. However, though relatively small fatigue damage was estimated at HAZ in Mod.9Cr-1Mo steel, deep fatigue cracks were observed in the test. To identify the cause of such a discrepancy between the test and calculations, we performed a series of finite element analyses. Some metallurgical investigations were also performed.
