Microscopic Phase-Field Simulation of the Process of Middle Heat Treatment of Ni-Cr-Al Alloy
The effect of the middle heat treatment+aging(1323K+1073K) for the precipitation mechanism and volume fraction of Ni-11at.%Cr-17at.%Al ternary alloy are studied based on microscopic phase-field model. The results show that the precipitation mechanism is non-classical nucleation and growth for the alloy at middle heat treatment, and the congruent ordering and spinodal decomposition mechanism occur at single-stage aging. The larger precipitation strengthening phases are obtained, the volume fraction of ordering phases and the averaged ordering parameter are higher, and the incubation period prolongs after the middle heat treatment.
