|Abstract||Four coaxial copper bicrystals were employed to study the slip morphologies and fatigue cracking behaviors during cyclic deformation. Three of them had high-angle grain boundaries (GBs) with nearly the same misorientation and one bicrystal had a twin boundary (TB). Different slip bands (SBs) operated near the GBs and TB, generating different dislocation arrangements, which are mainly determined by the crystallographic orientations of the component grains. The GBs suffered impingement or shear damage caused by slip difference from both sides. It is suggested that there is an energy increase in the interfaces between matrix and persistent slip bands (PSBs), GBs and TBs per cycle during cyclic deformation due to the accumulation of lattice defects, which would make the interface unstable. After a certain number of cycles, fatigue cracks initiated firstly at GBs for some bicrystals while fatigue cracking occurred preferentially at PSBs for the others. It is confirmed that the energy growth rate is an increasing function of the shear stress, strain amplitude and strain incompatibility, which results from slip differences on both sides of the interfaces. Interfaces with different energies and strain incompatibilities have different fatigue cracking resistance. It is found that GBs with defective and complex structure, and hence high interfacial energy accompanied by high modulus of the residual GB dislocation (GBD), are preferential sites for fatigue cracking, while the fatigue cracking appeared predominantly at PSBs when the modulus of the residual GBD is lower than that of a perfect dislocation with simple GB structure and low interfacial energy. The present model for the energy can predict well which kind of interface would form cracks preferentially during cyclic deformation in one coaxial bicrystal and which GB would need more cycles to initiate fatigue cracking between coaxial bicrystals with different GB characters.
