Abstract

This paper presents parametric studies on creep-fatigue endurance of the steel AISI type 316N(L) weldments defined as types 1, 2 and 3 according to R5 Vol. 2/3 Procedure classification at 550C. The study is implemented using the Linear Matching Method (LMM) and based upon previously developed creep fatigue evaluation procedure considering time fraction rule. Several geometrical configurations of weldments with individual parameter sets, representing different fabrication cases, are developed. For each of configurations, the total number of cycles to failure N* in creep-fatigue conditions is assessed numerically for different loading cases. The obtained set of N* is extrapolated by the analytic function dependent on normalised bending moment˜M, dwell period Dt and geometrical parameters. Proposed function for N* shows good agreement with numerical results obtained by the LMM. Therefore, it is used for the identification of Fatigue Strength Reduction Factors (FSRFs) intended for design purposes and dependent on proposed variable parameters.
