Low cycle fatigue (LCF) and Creep-fatigue interaction (CFI) behavior of 316LN austenitic stainless steel alloyed with 0.07, 0.11, 0.14,.22 wt.% nitrogen is briefly discussed in this paper. The strain-life fatigue behavior of these steels is found to be dictated by not only cyclic plasticity but also by dynamic strain aging (DSA) and secondary cyclic hardening (SCH). The influence of the above phenomenon on cyclic stress response and fatigue life is evaluated in the present study. The above mentioned steels exhibited both single- and dual- slope strain-life fatigue behavior depending on the test temperatures. Concomitant dislocation sub structural evolution has revealed transition in substructures from planar to cell structures justifying the change in slope. The beneficial effect of nitrogen on LCF life is observed to be maximum for 316LN with nitrogen in the range 0.11 - 0.14 wt.%, for the tests conducted over a range of temperatures (773-873 K) and at ±0.4 and 0.6% strain amplitudes at a strain rate of 3*10-3 s-1. A decrease in the applied strain rate from 3*10-3 s-1 to 3 *10-5 s-1 or increase in the test temperature from 773 to 873 K led to a peak in the LCF life at a nitrogen content of 0.07 wt.%. Similar results are obtained in CFI tests conducted with tensile hold periods of 13 and 30 minutes. Fractography studies of low strain rate and hold time tested specimen s revealed extensive intergranular cracking. © (2013) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
