Abstract : This program investigates the seemingly unusual behavior of single crystal airfoil materials. The fatigue initiation processes in single crystal (SC) materials are significantly more complicated and involved than fatigue initiation and subsequently behavior of a (single) macrocrack in conventional, isotropic, materials. To understand these differences is the major goal of this project.
