Development of Multi-Phase Intermetallic Alloy Composed of Ni3X-Type Structures
Dual multi-phase intermetallic alloy, which is composed of Ni3Al(L12) and Ni solid solution (A1) phases at high temperature annealing and is additionally refined by a eutectoid reaction at low temperature annealing, according to which the Al phase is transformed into the Ni3Al(L12)+Ni3V(D022) phases, was prepared. High-temperature tension and creep test were conducted using single crystalline materials. The alloy with such a novel microstructure showed extremely high yield and tensile stresses with good temperature retention. The creep test conducted at high temperature showed extremely low creep rate and creep rupture time when compared with advanced Ni-based superalloys. The results obtained are promising for the development of a new-type of high-temperature structural materials.
