Temperature dependence of flexural and torsional elastic constants of two nickel-based superalloys

  • Dattatraya P. Dandekar
  • Anthony G. Martin


A sonic resonance technique has been used to determine Young's and shear moduli of one directionally solidified polycrystalline alloy, Rene 80H, and one single crystal of alloy Rene N4 as functions of temperature from 300 to 1373 and 1298 K, respectively. The variations in the elastic constants of these two alloys are best represented by quadratic functions of temperature.
