Abstract: The influence of gap filler content on the fracture, fatigue crack initiation and propagation of AISI 316 stainless steel wide-gap brazed with nickel-based filler metal has been investigated. The brazed joints were found to consist of eutectic, intermetallic compound and solid solution. The volume of solid solution was observed to depend on the gap filler content and brazing temperature. Tensile tests with extra small strain gauge bonded at the centre of the joints showed that the strength and elongation of the brazed joints increased with brazing temperature, and the addition of gap filler was able to improve the load-carrying capacity of the brazed joints only when the brazing temperature was high enough. Fatigue crack initiation and growth under displacement amplitude control were also carried out. Crack closure in the brazed joints was determined by means of back face strain on the compact tension specimen used. The introduction of gap filler was able to increase the fatigue and fracture resistance of the brazed joints when a suitable brazing temperature was used. Crack deflection, branching and uncracked ligament bridging behind the crack tip were observable along the crack paths. Experimental results showed that gap filler was able to enhance the crack closure caused by roughness and ligament bridging. © 1995 Chapman & Hall.
