The Studies of Non-Equilibrium Grain Boundary Segregation in Ni-Base Superalloy


Article Preview

Some basic principles of non-equilibrium grain boundary segregation (NGS) and their applications to B, Mg P segregation to boundaries in Ni-base superalloy are reviewed. An attempt is made to emphasize the evidences of NGS for B, Mg, P in Ni-base superalloy.
