dc.description.abstractCylindrical test pieces of low-carbon austenitic steel 316L are subjected to cyclic thermal loads in a specially designed rig. Intermittent stops allowed measurement of cycles to initiation and of the propagation of the networks of axial and circumferential cracks. These results have been used to validate an analysis procedure, based on a sequentially coupled thermal-stress finite element analysis. It is found that the initiation life can be reliably predicted from the stain range at the inner surface, while a simplified semi-elliptical crack model best described the subsequent crack growth.en_GB
