Alloys-by-design: applications to polycrystalline nickel superalloys for turbine disc applications

Abstract:

The nickel-based superalloys have been a key enabler to the development of modern gas turbine engines. Since their introduction the chemical complexity of these alloys has increased significantly, with current generation nickel-based superalloys usually containing over 10 different elements. It is this combination of alloying additions that is responsible for the superior high temperature properties these alloys exhibit.

Traditionally, alloy design has invoked considerable use of t...
