Title: Microstructural evolution in coated conventionally cast Ni-based superalloys
Authors: Newman, Scott
Keywords: Ni-based superalloys
High temperature coatings
Thermal Barrier coating
Issue Date: 2013
Publisher: © Scott Newman
Abstract: The aim of this research project was to investigate the microstructural changes of MCrAlY coated Ni-based superalloys that are routinely used in industrial gas turbine engines for power generation. One of the main aims of the characterisation was to understand ageing time and temperature effects on the microstructural evolution so that a methodology could be developed where the characterisation of a thermally exposed microstructure can be used to estimate unknown service exposure conditions.
