The strength of a nickel-based superalloy hardened through precipitation is related to the volume fraction, particle size and distribution of the precipitated phase, γ′. These parameters may vary as a result of heat treatment, or high-temperatures service. The information obtained, describing the influence of time and temperature on the precipitated phase, γ′, is of special importance owing to its technological application at high temperatures. Dissolution or precipitation kinetics are such that the volume-fraction balance of the γ′ phase is quickly established at an ageing temperature given by successive changes due only to the particle growth. The results of the present study describe heat-treatment effects on size and distribution of the γ′ phase, and precipitated carbides ageing of a nickel-based superalloy (IN-713C). These on ageing studies at a certain temperature show that the kinetic growth of γ′ particles by controlled diffusion follows that r ∝ t1/3 law.
