    Abstract

    Recently a controversy has developed over whether crystallographic crack growth near threshold in nickel-base superalloys occurs along right brace 111 left brace slip planes or right brace 100 left brace planes at room temperature. In this work crack propagation is shown to occur on both right brace 100 left brace and right brace 111 left brace planes. The most common facet plane is right brace 111 left brace and this is the only orientation observed at the lowest stress intensities, but at higher stress intensities occasional right brace 100 left brace facets are also produced. This behavior is compared with similar results in aluminum alloys.
