Creep crack growth behavior of Fe-Cr15-Ni25 alloys with different grain boundary features has been studied. Cavities nucleate at triple junctions of grain boundaries for the single phase alloy and at grain boundary carbide for the alloy with grain boundary carbide. Grain boundary carbide particles are obstacles to cavity growth and coalescence, and therefore increase the creep crack growth resistance greatly.
