Low cycle fatigue tests have been performed at 1038C on equiaxed MAR-M-247 under a mean compressive strain. Strain ranges assessed were 0.4, 0.6 and 0.8%, with this test program reflecting industrial gas turbine duty cycles. Fractographic analysis demonstrated transgranular crack propagation with intergranular fast fracture. Heavily oxidized secondary cracks were observed throughout. The details of a Lemaitre-Chaboche constitutive model that has been applied to the experimental stress-strain response are described. It was found
that this model was capable of capturing both plastic shakedown and kinematic hardening effects with a high degree of accuracy (R2 up to 0.997 and SSE up to 6E+4). The suitability of extending this model to address different strain histories are detailed.
