Abstract

An experimental program was conducted in order to determine the effects of microstructure on the high temperature constitutive behavior or powder-processed IN 100. The relevant application is the high pressure turbine disk in a gas turbine engine. Eight different microstructures were prepared, with 260°C yield strengths ranging from 945 to 1165 MPa. For each microstructure, tensile tests and cyclic constitutive tests were conducted at 260°C and 650°C. This paper reports on the tensile test results. The tensile curves were fit to a modified Ramberg-Osgood constitutive model, which contains four material constants. It was found that two of the constants were sensitive to microstructure, while two others were not. The constant K 1 which is analogous to the strength coefficient in the traditional power-law hardening expression, varied in exactly the same way as the yield strength. The variations in yield strength and K1 were consistent with the Huther-Reppich strength model, with the secondary γ′ size being the dominant microstructural term. There was also a smaller effect of tertiary γ′and grain size. The hardening exponent n, which is basically the inverse of the hardening exponent in the traditional power-law hardening expression, was sensitive to secondary γ′ size and also to the presence of primary γ′, but not to grain size.
