Dual phase titanium alloys, such as Ti-6242, experience a significant reduction in fatigue lifetime when the peak load is held at each cycle. This type of sustained peak loading, also known as dwell fatigue, mimics the long periods of high mean stress experienced by titanium fan and compressor components during takeoff and cruise. The reduction in fatigue lifetime is known as the dwell debit, and is attributed to the phenomenon of load shedding. Both local microstructure and temperature are known to impact load shedding and thereby the macroscopic response of Ti-6242 when subject to dwell fatigue, but the underlying mechanisms are still under active investigation. This study utilized electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) and digital image correlation (DIC) to characterize the role of local microstructure and temperature on load shedding during dwell fatigue. EBSD was used to determine local orientation and texture information, and DIC provided information about the heterogeneity of the strain distribution and plastic strain accumulation. Ex-situ tests were performed to investigate the link between the deformation of local microstructures and macroscopic damage. The resultant strain fields and orientation maps were statistically analyzed to provide quantitative insights into the impact of local microstructure on load shedding during dwell fatigue.
