Haynes 230 is a solid solution strengthened, FCC, nickel based superalloy. This alloy is commonly used in flying and land-based turbines, and in other fatigue intensive applications. In situ neutron diffraction was used to investigate the behavior of internal strains in this alloy under both strain-controlled tension/compression, and stress-controlled tension/tension fatigue conditions. Experiments took place at the Spectrometer for Materials Research at Temperature and Stress (SMARTS) facility at the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE) and at the ENGIN-X spectrometer at ISIS. Residual strains were seen to develop and saturate during the first 100 fatigue cycles. Little, if any, strain relaxation was noted as 85 % of the fatigue life was reached. Characteristics of both in situ lattice strains and residual strains in various hkl directions during the fatigue deformation will be discussed in comparison to those observed during monotonic tensile testing.
