报告题目：Gammalloys Materials-Processes-Application Technology: Successes, Limitations and Future
内容摘要：Recent applications of gamma alloys for aero-engine LPT blades at intermediate service temperatures (up to 750°C) and automotive turbocharger wheels at higher (metal) temperatures (800-950°C) establish a foundation of gamma alloy materials-processes-manufacturing technology. Despite these exciting developments and their sustained expansion, the temperature capability and property balance of current alloys for the aero-engine blades has remained unchanged for the last 10-25 years. The service temperatures for the automotive components have been slowly raised for the last 15 years through compositional adjustments, however, at the expense of the producibility and reliability, which has slowed wide-ranging adoption.
If the above history is any guide, the gamma alloy materials technology will remain in the same level indefinitely unless we rightly change our current R&D practices. The changes can be effectively accomplished through the three steps: (1) correct understanding of current gamma alloy materials-processes technologies and realization of their limitations; (2) formation of the critical data, knowledge and information (DKI) base needed for the development of useful alloy-materials-processes-microstructure forms; and (3) utilizing the application-specific RD processes (designing an application-specific alloy-microstructure form by integrating selected DKI and formulation of pertinent processing paths (wrought vs. casting), followed by validation experiments and refining processes).
The future of gamma alloy materials and processes technologies depends on how quickly we help redirect our RD practices to be target-oriented and go through the above three steps to realize the composition-processing-microstructure combinations that will satisfy the greater temperature or performance requirements for specific components or systems.
