The formation of liquation cracking in a simulated heat affected zone of René108 is reported. The stress controlled thermo-mechanical experiments were carried out on a Gleeble®3800 testing system. The base alloy was lost-wax cast and then solution treated and aged. Light and scanning electron microscopy of this material revealed high volume fraction of γ' precipitates in the dendrite arms and residual eutectic γ/γ' islands in the interdendritic areas. As a result of short-term exposure to high homologous temperature, the volume fraction of γ' phase was significantly decreased due to the dissolution of precipitates in the surrounding matrix. The thin non-equilibrium liquid film, formed locally along grain boundaries, was a key-factor favoring initiation of cracks and their spreading during the Gleeble testing. The liquid appeared as a result of constitutional liquation, mainly of the γ' precipitates.
