Abstract: The thermodynamic assessment of the Al-Ir binary system, one of the key sub-systems of the Ir-based alloys, was performed using the CALPHAD technique. The AlIr(B2) phase was described using the two sublattice model with the formula (Al,Ir)0.5(Ir,Va)0.5, while other intermetallic phases were treated as stoichiometric compounds. The calculated data of the phases in the Al-Ir system can be used to accurately reproduce experimental data, such as phase equilibria, invariant reactions, and formation enthalpies of the intermetallic phases.

Abstract: Thermogravimetry measurements associated to concentration profiles allow determining a diffusion coefficient at high temperature of the most oxidable one among the metallic elements belonging to the chemical composition of an alloy. In this work the employed method is described and applied to chromia-forming alloys essentially based on nickel but also to selected cobalt-based and iron-based alloys. More precisely DCr values were estimated for chromium diffusing through the carbide-free zones developed during high temperature oxidation. The effects of the base element, of the chromium carbides density and of the dendritic orientations on the chromium diffusion were evidenced.

Abstract: The possible use of tungsten alloys as structural materials in future fusion reactor divertors strongly depend on their ductile-to-brittle transition temperature (DBTT). The present paper gives an overview on different rod and plate materials fabricated by PLANSEE. It is demonstrated that DBTT is clearly improved compared to commercially available standard materials. Moreover, the significant impact of the microstructure on fracture mode and on toughness is discussed in detail.

Abstract: In this paper we report the oxidation behavior of Rh-xTi (x = 15 & 20 atomic percent) alloys isothermally exposed in air between 1000 and 1300 oC up to a period of 312 hours. The weight gain of arc-melted Rh-15Ti and Rh-20Ti alloys as a function of time was monitored. Results indicate that the oxidation resistance of Rh-15Ti and Rh-20Ti alloys at 1000 and 11000 C is similar to that of advanced nickel-base superalloys. However, these alloys show excellent oxidation resistance beyond the operational limit for nickel-base superalloys. Optical microscopy (OM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDS), and X-ray diffraction (XRD) techniques were used to study the microstructure and morphology of the oxides. These alloys oxidize by forming TiO2 and Rh2O3 complex oxides. The Rh-20Ti alloys displayed lower oxidation resistance than Rh-15Ti alloys.
