Introduction to Superalloys and their Applications - Superalloys Lecture 10

posted on 10.05.2021, 10:26 by Christopher Daniel
This set of lectures is on an "Introduction to Superalloys and their Applications" for the Superalloys & High Performance Materials course part 10. This part of the course was taught by Dr Christopher Daniel at The University of Manchester in 2021.

Video 1 will define the term "superalloys" and summarise the advantages and disadvantages of different iron, nickel and cobalt base superalloy materials, as well as summarising their different applications.

Video 2 will introduce the high complexity of nickel superalloy chemistry, outline how processing and heat-treatments can be used to improve material properties, and introduce the different nickel superalloy types and categories.

Video 3 will describe the degradation processes that affect the in-service properties of nickel superalloys throughout their operational lifetime, including oxidation, corrosion, stress corrosion cracking (SCC) and hot-corrosion.

The live lecture includes poll questions and discussion for the "Introduction to Superalloys and their Applications" topic and was recorded on Thursday 15th April 2021.
