Understanding of time-dependent crack growth stems from the mechanism map[1], which has previously been available only for nickel-base alloys. Advancedaircraft gas turbine engines seek higher performance through increased thrust-toweightratios thus requiring similar understanding for titanium alloys. This paperdiscusses observations from high temperature fatigue crack growth testing ofTitanium 6Al-2Sn-4Zr-6Mo. This effort to describe the time-dependentmechanisms includes development of a crack growth mechanism map.
