Nowadays high temperatures resistant materials are needed to resist to high temperature applications (up to 1000°C), such as automotive exhaust gas manifolds. Some developed stainless steel grades, including ferritic grades or austenitic refractory grades, can be used in this temperature range and both in continuous or cyclic thermal conditions. In order to predict the thermomechanical fatigue damage of stainless steel parts submitted to cyclic thermal loading and constrained bonding conditions, the elastoviscoplastic model by Chaboche is determined for a wide range of temperatures, of strain amplitudes and strain rate levels thanks to isothermal traction-compression tests. The validation procedure is performed afterward by comparison with stabilized behavior under non isothermal conditions on a dedicated thermal fatigue test performed on V-shape specimens. Results of simulation show very good fitting with the experimental curves which would lead to a more accurate fatigue life prediction. A damage model was derived from Taira’s thermal low-cycle fatigue model to include dwell-time period at high temperature and creep-oxidation effect. In this paper the example of K44X, a dedicated grade for high temperatures applications, is presented.
