Evaluation of Mechanical Properties of a Superalloy Disk with a Dual Microstructure
The main purpose of this paper is to evaluate the mechanical properties of a FGH96 alloy disk with a dual microstructure. FGH96 is a powder metallurgy (P/M) processed disk alloy, which was developed in the 1990s in China. The manufacturing processes used to produce the FGH96 disk with a dual grain structure consisted of atomization by plasma rotating electrode process (PREP), hot isostatic pressing (HIP), isothermal forge, special heat treatment for obtaining dual grain struc-ture and final heat treatment. The disk was cut up and completely evaluated. Mechanical properties, including tensile, stress rupture, plastic creep, low cycle fatigue, fatigue crack growth rate, fracture toughness, impact and hardness, were tested at room and higher temperatures. In addition, a detailed grain characterization of the disk, from rim to bore, was also presented.
