Mechanical Behavior


Experiments were performed to investigate the growth of grain boundary cavities in nickel under internal pressure and applied stress. Under the experimental conditions the growth kinetics was found to be controlled by stress induced mass transfer. The growth rate was a nonlinear function of the applied stress and was found to depend on grain boundary orientation and grain boundary sliding.
