Superalloys: Alloying and Performance
Chapter 3: Strengthening Mechanisms
This chapter discusses the metallurgical changes that occur and the improvements that can be achieved in superalloys through solid-solution hardening, precipitation hardening, and dispersion strengthening. It also explains how further improvements can be achieved through the control of grain structure, as in columnar-grained alloys, or by the elimination of grain boundaries as with single-crystal superalloys.
