    Abstract

    Type 304 stainless steel was subjected to a controlled push-pull strain with a wide variety of waveforms at 650°C in 0.1 μPa vacuum. No indication of oxidation was observed in the specimens. The frequency effect on creep-fatigue behavior was diminished, but the tensile hold time and waveshape effects were still observed in this high vacuum environment. It was concluded that a reduction of fatigue life due to creep-fatigue interaction is observed when a tension going time exceeds a compression going time. A back stress was determined from the data, and an overstress was defined as the difference between an applied stress and a back stress. The overstress was related to the inelastic strain rate. It is shown that overstress can be reasonably used to describe the creep-fatigue damages for life prediction.
