GH4133B is a nickel-base superalloy which was developed for use in the manufacture of aero-engine turbine disks and other high-temperature components. Since these components are operated at high temperature and under cyclic loading, damage resulting from fatigue-creep interaction is the main factor. The situation is often simulated in laboratories at high temperature low-cycle fatigue. The interactive effect between different loading levels should be considered. The fatigue-creep experiments for alloy GH4133B at 600 Celsius degree have been carried out at continuous cyclic creep (CF) loading to investigate the interaction of creep damage and fatigue damage. Fracture surfaces are examined under the scanning electron microscope (SEM). Then a nonlinear fatigue-creep failure criterion function proposed by Hongyin Mao is employed to fit the experimental data. The probabilistic model of GH4133B under CF loading is established based on the deterministic failure function. Firstly, the random variables influencing the fatigue-creep life and values of the distribution parameters are investigated. Then fatigue-creep damage interaction is discussed and a linear damage accumulation rule is considered, according to which the limit state function used to express the probability of failure is proposed. Lastly, reliability analysis under fatigue-creep failure is proceeded by applying analytical and simulation methods. Furthermore, the random variable with low sensitivity index through the sensitivity analysis can be treated as deterministic parameter during the reliability analysis and reliability design in order to improve the computing efficiency.
