FATIGUE CRACK INITIATION AND PROPAGATION OF A TiNi SHAPE MEMORY ALLOY

Abstract : Fatigue crack initiation and propagation stages of a TiNi shape memory alloy are examined thanks to a low cycle fatigue interrupted test. Submitted to fatigue cyclic loading, the response of the alloy presents a classical pseudoelastic response. Two potential initiation crack areas are highlighted: at the phase interfaces or at the grain boundaries. Then, propagation results from the coalescence of many microscopic cracks. These two stages are detectable at the last 20% of the total fatigue life.
