  • Finite element simulations of the high-temperature behavior of single-phase {gamma}, dual-phase {alpha}{sub 2} + {gamma}, and fully lamellar (FL) {alpha}{sub 2} + {gamma} TiAl intermetallic alloy microstructures have been performed. Nonlinear viscous primary creep deformation is modeled in each phase based on published creep data. Models were also developed that incorporate grain boundary and lath boundary sliding in addition to the dislocation creep flow within each phase. Overall stain rates are compared to gain an understanding of the relative influence each of these localized deformation mechanisms has on the creep strength of the microstructures considered. Facet stress enhancement factors weremore » also determined for the transverse grain facets in each model to examine the relative susceptibility to creep damage. The results indicate that a mechanism for unrestricted sliding of {gamma} lath boundaries theorized by Hazzledine and co-workers leads to unrealistically high strain rates. However, the results also suggest that the greater creep strength observed experimentally for the lamellar microstructure is primarily due to inhibited former grain boundary sliding (GBS) in this microstructure compared to relatively unimpeded GBS in the equiaxed microstructures. The serrated nature of the former grain boundaries generally observed for lamellar TiAl alloys is consistent with this finding.« less
  • Numerical simulations of the high temperature creep constrained cavitation in single phase {gamma}, equiaxed dual phase {alpha}{sub 2} + {gamma} and fully lamellar {alpha}{sub 2} + {gamma} TiAl intermetallic alloy microstructures have been performed. Nonlinear viscous secondary creep deformation is modeled in each phase using finite element techniques. Additional models of these alloys were developed that incorporate grain boundary sliding in addition to the dislocation creep flow within each phase. The cavitation in the models is based on the modified equations of Needleman and Rice. It was found that grain boundary sliding strongly enhances the cavity growth in all ofmore » the models analyzed. The present results indicate that the relatively long creep life observed experimentally for fully lamellar TiAl is primarily due to the suppression of grain boundary sliding as a result of the serrated nature of the grain boundaries.« less
  • Current experimental methods are influenced by the end effects that cause non-uniform strain rates in the gauge section and material flow within the grips. A series of tension tests and finite element models confirm this for an Al-5083 alloy. Both the tests and the finite element simulations predict that the actual strain rate begins at about 60 percent of the desired strain rate and increases gradually with strain. Material flow from the grips into the gauge effectively ``slows`` the strain rate at the initial stages of the test. As the test proceeds thinning of the gauge section occurs and mostmore » of the strain occurs in the gauge section due to the relative cross-sectional areas of the grip and gauge section. Testing and models were also run comparing specimens with and without alignment holes in the grips. It was shown that alignment holes increase flow from the grips and thus introduce additional error in the tests. Further modeling was performed to evaluate the improved accuracy of specimens with increased length-to-width ratios. This work showed that a specimen with 50% reduction in the standard gauge width and double the standard gauge length (4:1 increase in length-to-width ratio) gave strain rates within 10% of the desired value throughout the test.« less
  • Diffraction profiles of single crystal Ni-based superalloy samples with different microstructures were measured in situ up to the complete solutionizing of the {gamma}{prime} phase, using a high resolution triple crystal diffactometer and high energy synchrotron radiation (150 keV, {lambda} = 0.08 {angstrom}). A comparison between an undeformed sample and creep-deformed specimens with various resultant microstructures evidenced a relation between the lattice parameter distribution, the {gamma}{prime} precipitate microstructure and the sign of the connectivity. It was shown that a deformation induces a change in the relative volume cell of {gamma} and {gamma}{prime} phases. Moreover, the high resolution of the experimental set-upmore » allows in many cases the {gamma}{prime} phase volume fraction to be measured with a good accuracy.« less
