The Validation of Microstructural Prediction in Nickel Superalloys
Forged parts, specifically designed for the validation of microstructural models, have been manufactured in Inconel alloy 718 using a wide range of thermo-mechanical histories. The microstructural evolution observed in the forged samples has been compared with predictions from two models for dynamic recrystallisation and grain growth.
