Abstract

The ductile-to-brittle transition temperature (DBTT) of a free-standing Pt-aluminide (PtAl) bondcoat was determined using the microtensile testing method and the effect of strain rate variation, in the range 10−5 to 10−1 s−1, on the DBTT studied. The DBTT increased appreciably with the increase in strain rate. The activation energy determined for brittle-to-ductile transition, suggested that such transition is most likely associated with vacancy diffusion. Climb of 〈100〉 dislocations observed in analysis of dislocation structure using a transmission electron microscope (TEM) supported the preceding mechanism.
