Abstract


Different solidification conditions are employed to produce sets of single-crystal samples with different primary dendrite arm spacings, i.e., 600 mu m, 400 mu m, and 250 mu m. The material with the smaller dendrite arm spacing is shown to possess considerably increased high-cycle fatigue life. Fatigue cracks are found to originate from shrinkage porosity rather than from carbides, in which the size of the largest pores in the samples scales with the primary dendrite arm spacing. Fatigue life can be rationalized using a fracture mechanics approach based on a Kitagawa-Takahashi plot. The impact of the results with respect to the development of new commercial casting processes that produce higher temperature gradients and cooling rates will be discussed.
