This article discusses the composition, structure, and properties of iron-nickel-, nickel-, and cobalt-base superalloys and the effect of major alloying and trace elements. It describes the primary and secondary roles of each alloying element, the amounts typically used, and the corresponding effect on properties and microstructure. It also covers mechanical alloying and weldability and includes nominal composition data on many wrought and cast superalloys.
