Low temperature (1023 K) high stress (800 MPa) tensile creep behavior of the superalloy single crystal ERBO-1 (CMSX-4 type) is investigated. Three loading directions are compared: precise [001] and 15 ° deviations from [001] towards [111] and [011]. It is found that creep rates scale as already in the early stages of creep (), where dislocation network formation and planar fault intersections cannot rationalize the observed rate effects. An analysis based on Peach-Köhler force calculations suggests, that fast creep rates are observed, when dislocations from two octahedral systems, which are required to react and form the leading part of a planar fault ribbon in the γ’-phase, experience similar driving forces. Creep data, micromechanical calculations and TEM results are in good qualitative agreement. From a technological point of view, the results show that while 15 ° deviations from [001] towards [011] can be tolerated, deviations towards [111] must be avoided.
