EFFECTS OF PROCESS CONDITIONS AND MICROSTRUCTURE ON THE FATIGUE AND FRACTURE OF AM IN718 UNDER

Additive manufacturing (AM) dramatically increases the design freedom for difficult to machine alloys like IN718. For turbine applications for aerospace and energy, additional freedom in component design allows for lightweighting and better cooling efficiency. This study seeks to elucidate and model the effects of porous and crystallographic microstructural elements on the fatigue life and fracture behavior of AM IN718 through X-ray computed tomography (XCT), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) of specimens tested under high temperature high cycle fatigue.
