On the possibility of rhenium clustering in nickel-based superalloys

Abstract:

In order to elucidate the role of this element in superalloy metallurgy, the binding energy of Re-Re pairs and the stability of small Re clusters in the nickel face-centred cubic (fcc) lattice is investigated using ab initio density functional theory. It is shown that the formation of Re-Re nearest neighbour pairs is energetically unfavourable, and that this repulsive energy is dramatically reduced as soon as the solute atoms move further apart from one another. Furthermore, small nearest nei...
