High Temperature Creep Mechanisms in Single Crystals of Some High Performance Nickel Base Superalloys

  • Allan Fredholm
  • Jean-Loup Strudel


One of the striking observations made on γ′ strengthened Ni base superalloys subjected to high temperature creep is the sensitivity of the γ-γ'; microstructure to stress oriented coarsening.
