Summary

The development of nickel base alloys over the past 40 years from the simple nickel chromium matrix to the multi-element, multi-phase system of today is discussed under two main headings. The first deals with the metallurgy of the alloys and covers alloying practice, the phases present, strengthening mechanisms and heat treatment. The second heading deals with the application of nickel base alloys for wrought and cast turbine blades, turbine discs, including atomised powder discs, and sheet components. Reference is also made to the dispersion strengthened alloys.
