Résumé

The present work focuses on the intergranular oxidation of Alloy 600 and its weld material Alloy 82 after exposure in simulated primary water at 340–360 °C during 1000–1400 h. The effects of intergranular chromium carbides, grain boundary character and pre-straining are studied either on industrial heats or model microstructures. Three-dimensional reconstructions of well-chosen grain boundaries are obtained using focused ion beam tomography in a scanning electron microscope. The 3D characterizations show that (1) twin boundaries are less susceptible to oxidation than high-angle grain boundaries; (2) intergranular chromium carbides delay the intergranular oxidation kinetics; (3) the intergranular oxidation depth is quite homogeneous along a given grain boundary except when strain heterogeneity exists in its vicinity, (4) strain heterogeneity tends to accelerate the intergranular oxidation kinetics; and (5) crack initiation in the oxidized grain boundary occurs at the alloy/oxide interface.
