    Abstract

    The aim of this study is to understand the influence of experimentally applied boundary conditions on circumferentially-notched specimens under thermomechanical fatigue loadings (TMF) in two Ni-base superalloys, one equiaxed polycrystalline, and one directionally-solidified. TMF experiments were performed under both force-controlled and displacement-controlled conditions. Notch severities ranged from kt = 1.3 to kt = 2. The notch response was evaluated by finite element analysis using temperature-dependent viscoplasticity. The experiments and analyses are used to assess the impact of the applied boundary conditions on calculated and observed fatigue crack initiation lives.
