Accelerated design and testing of new nickel-based superalloys

Abstract:

Nickel-based superalloys have emerged as the materials of choice for high-temperature jet propulsion and industrial gas turbine applications due to their unique combination of resistance to loading under static, fatigue, and creep conditions, as well as to environmental degradation. The specific fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of turbines can be significantly reduced by increasing the operating temperature, thus providing a continued drive within the materials research community to deve...
