Observations from Fatigue Testing and Effect of Heat Treatment on ULCF Performance Table three shows the ULCF benefits for each the AM and Bafilomycin C1 In stock wrought 17-4 PH stainless steel Table three shows the ULCF benefits for each the AM and wrought 17-4 PH stainless steel specimens (with and without heat treatment) and Figure 6 shows the resulting fatigue-life specimens (with and without heat therapy) and Figure six shows the resulting fatigue-life curves. From Table three (shown graphically in Figure 6) the wrought specimens consistently curves. From Table 3 (shown graphically in Figure 6) the wrought specimens regularly achieved a greater fatigue life when compared with all the AM counterparts. For the higher achieved a larger fatigue fatigue-lifecompared with all the AM counterparts. For the high strain amplitude cycles, a life when reduction of almost 65 on typical was observed strain amplitude cycles, a fatigue-life reduction of nearly 65 around the observed decrease for the AM fabricated steel. At decrease strain amplitudes (three strain), average was observed for fatigue life as a consequence of steel.fabrication was 62 on average. For the lowest considered within the AM fabricated AM At reduce strain amplitudes (three strain), the observed decrease in fatigue life duewhich entered in to the LCF regime (resulting the lowestlives higher than strain amplitude to AM fabrication was 62 on average. For in fatigue viewed as strain amplitude which entered into the LCFAM and (resultingspecimens were equivalent. than 100 one hundred cycles), fatigue performance of the regime wrought in fatigue lives higher cycles), fatigue efficiency from the AM and wrought specimens had been equivalent.
