    Abstract

    The fatigue crack growth rate (FCGR) of a nitrogen-strengthened high-manganese stainless steel of nominal composition 18Mn-5Ni-16Cr-0.02C-0.22N was determined in the intermediate stress-intensity factor range (20–70 MPa√m) at 77 and 4 K. Fractographic investigations were performed on the fracture surfaces. The FCGR at 4 K was very nearly the same as at 77 K and substantially below the FCGR for AISI 304LN steel. The fracture surfaces of both the high-manganese alloy and the 304LN showed a transgranular failure mode, but the detailed fractographic features varied with temperature and alloy type. The fractography was closely related to changes in the FCGR.
