Fatigue crack initiation data were generated for Type 403 martensitic stainless steel in laboratory air and oxygenated steam environments. Tests were conducted with 1-in.-thick blunt notched compact tension specimens and the results analyzed and expressed in terms of both fracture mechanics and maximum stress parameters.
