Abstract

A stochastic model and a method of simulation of the initiation and the early propagation of creep-fatigue small cracks along grain boundaries were proposed. In the model, grain boundaries between two adjacent triple points were projected and linked on a straight line perpendicular to the applied stress axis, and their length was given as random variables of a normal distribution. The grain boundaries had their own fracture resistances, the magnitudes of which were given as uniform random numbers. The fracture resistance of each grain boundary decreased by a constant magnitude corresponding to the driving force of one fatigue cycle. When the resistance became zero or a negative value, the grain boundary was assumed to fracture and to yield an intergranular facet of small crack.
