Alloy Design with Oxide Dispersiods and Precipitates

Abstract

The mechanical behavior of particle strengthened alloys is reviewed and at times extended. On the basis of this knowledge, we discuss and conclude that second phase particles, coherent or incoherent, can certainly enhance the flow strength, creep resistance, and stress-rupture life of alloys. Unfortunately, we also conclude that, at this time, particles are usually not beneficial alloy-design elements if enhanced uniaxial ductility, plane-strain ductility, stress-rupture ductility, and toughness are called for. Such properties as fatigue-crack propagation resistance appear to require, for example, both high strength and high ductility, a situation which can come to pass only when the perennial conflict between strength and ductility is resolved in particle strengthened systems in particular and in any other material system in general. Wherever possible, we distinguish between the role of coherent versus incoherent particles in alloy design.
