Fatigue crack nucleation and propagation in Ni alloy
This project addresses the improvement of understanding on fatigue crack initiation processes at the grain-grain scale on single and directionally solidified Ni superalloy.
The anisotropic microstructure resulted strain, residual stress and dislocation density localisation are being investigated.
