Ratcheting fatigue tests were carried out on the micro-alloyed 2.25Cr–Mo steel with variable mean stress (σm), stress amplitude (σa) and stress rate () at room temperature. Increase in the σm and σa resulted in higher plastic strain accumulation and caused a reduction in fatigue life; however, rise in the enhanced the fatigue life. Hysteresis loop analysis showed variation in plastic strain range under the different test variables. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) was carried out to understand the lower plastic strain accumulation resulting from the high . It was observed that at high there was formation of stacking-faults/micro-twins in the M23C6 carbides, due to which there was strain partitioning between the matrix and the carbide particles, consequently, the effective strain in the matrix was reduced. Using mathematical modeling, experimental fatigue life was predicted by the trial and error method. The predicted fatigue life was found within the 1.55X scatter band and there was a reasonable estimation of ratcheting fatigue life.
