Predominantly driven by the development of the gas turbine engine, the superalloy industry requires continuous advancement of mechanical performance boundaries. This practical guide provides an introduction for understanding the compositional complexity of superalloys, along with the wide range of alloys developed for specific applications. Topics include the basics of alloying, strengthening mechanisms, structure of superalloys, compositional effects, superalloy selection. Manufacturing characteristics such as castability, forgeability, and weldability are also discussed, along with current research in the field.
