Low Cycle Fatigue

HAYNES® 230® alloy exhibits excellent low cycle fatigue properties at elevated temperature. Results shown below are for strain-controlled tests run in the temperature range from 800 to 1800°F (425 to 980°C). Samples were machined from plate. Tests were run with fully reversed strain (R=-1) at a frequency of 20 cpm (0.33 Hz).

230 - Low Cycle Fatigue Properties

Comparative Low Cycle Fatigue Properties

The graph below compares the low cycle fatigue lives of a number of alloys tested at 800°F (427°C) in both the as-received and 1400°F (760°C)/1000 hour pre-exposed condition. Samples were machined from plate or bar, after exposure for exposed samples. Tests were again run with fully reversed strain (R=-1) at a frequency of 20 cpm (0.33 Hz). TSR=Total Strain Range.
