Nowadays, one of the main research areas in cemented carbides is focused on the replacement of cobalt as a binder for more economical materials with similar or improved properties. Nickel is one of the materials most commonly used to replace cobalt, especially in applications involving corrosion. However, knowledge on mechanical properties, and particularly on fatigue response, of nickel based cemented carbides is relatively scarce. In this study, fracture and fatigue behavior of a nickel-base (...
