In recent decades, additive manufacturing (AM) technology has shown its great advantages to produce end-use products with complex design and high-added value. However, the AM-specific characters, such as inherent material anomalies (porosity, lack of fusion defects, or inclusions), anisotropy, location-specific properties and residual stresses, prevent AM from widely adoption in safety-critical parts. Therefore, the damage tolerance assessment of AM parts is desperately necessary. In this study, the impact of residual stress and the induced texture (columnar/equiax grain structure) after different heat treatment on the low cycle fatigue (LCF) behavior of Inconel 718 fabricated through selective laser melting (SLM) is investigated. The results showed that the texture of AMed parts can be controlled by suitable heat treatment, based on the residual stress during AM processing acting as the drive force to recrystallization. For SLMed Inconel 718 samples with columnar grains, anisotropic LCF properties exist, while no obvious sensitivity to orientations is shown for samples with equiaxed grains. This work is significantly meaningful to speed up the design-to-product transformation of safety-critical AM parts and optimize the orientation of components for various applications.
