Abstract : Forty AF2-1DA alloy radial turbine wheels were cast and X-ray inspected. Thirty-eight wheels were free of obvious defects and selected for evaluation. As-cast elevated temperature tensile strength was measured and as-cast/heat threated tensile and stress-rupture properties were determined. Eight wheels were HIPped in four combinations with temperatures varying from 2150 to 2250 F, pressures of 15 or 29 ksi, and a constant three-hour time period. Four solution heat treatment temperatures were selected based on a previous investigation to cast a modified AF2-1DA alloy composition (AFML Contract Number F33615-71-C-1573). Evaluations were performed using four HIP conditions and eight HIP/heat treatment combinations of four wheels each. Samples were examined metallographically and tensile and stress-rupture properties were determined. Four HIP/heat treatment combinations were selected for LCF testing on the basis of acceptable microstructures and mechanical properties. Room temperature strain-control LCF tests were performed and results analyzed on a Weibull distribution. Data analysis indicated that LCF life improvement was obtained through HIP and heat treatment. Specifically, a 3X LCF life improvement was achieved for as-cast wheels predicted to fail in less than 1000 cycles. (Author)
