Next-generation, reusable hypersonic aircraft will be subjected to extreme environments that produce complex fatigue loads at high temperatures, reminiscent of the life-limiting thermal and mechanical loads present in large gas-powered land-based turbines. In both of these applications, there is a need for greater fidelity in the constitutive material models employed in finite element simulations, resulting in the transition to nonlinear formulations. One such formulation is the nonlinear kinematic hardening (NLKH) model, which is a plasticity model quickly gaining popularity in the industrial sector, and can be found in commercial finite element software. The drawback to using models like the NLKH model is that the parameterization can be difficult, and the numerical fitting techniques commonly used for such tasks may result in constants devoid of physical meaning. This study presents a simple method to derive these constants by extrapolation of a reduced-order model, where the cyclic Ramberg–Osgood (CRO) formulation is used to obtain the parameters of a three-part NLKH model. This fitting scheme is used with basic literature-based data to fully characterize a constitutive model for Inconel 617 at temperatures between 20 °C and 1000 °C. This model is validated for low-cycle fatigue (LCF), creep-fatigue (CF), thermomechanical fatigue (TMF), and combined thermomechanical-high-cycle fatigue (HCF) using a mix of literature data and original data produced at the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL).
