Paper Title:
Determination of the Factors Controlling Crystallography Non-Conformance in Single Crystal Turbine Blade Production on an Industrial Scale
  Abstract

The arduous conditions to which hot section turbine components are subjected in service, dictate the superior physical and mechanical properties demanded of them. The demand for both high temperature and creep resistance, and anisotropic property requirements of the components has lead to developments in alloy composition, component geometry and single, oriented grain structure design. The slim tolerances and high quality standards imposed on such design features, combined with the high production volume in industry means that component non-conformances to the customer specifications occur. The input variables contributing to crystallography non-conformance in single crystal production have been investigated with a view to defining optimum process parameters for the successful manufacture of single crystal investment cast components on an industrial scale.
