News Feature


The IMD High Temperature Alloy Committee sponsored a two-session program on the SST jet engine on February 20th at the 1967 AIME Annual Meeting in Los Angeles. At the two sessions, 14 technical papers presented a broad picture of the performance requirements and superalloy research necessary for the development of the SST engine.
