 The combined effect of thermomechanical fatigue (TMF) and dwell times are growing in importance since changes in demand, and competition within sectors such as the power generation market and the transportation industry forces many components to operate under  ever more arduous conditions, to reduce fuel usage and CO2 emissions and at the same time maximize performance. A brief overview of the common test method for TMF as well as some results from recent studies on single crystal alloys, wrought superalloys and cast iron will be given.
