The combined mechanical strength and surface stability of superalloys–Group VIIA–base elements developed for high–temperature performance–has made them a prime constituent of space age materials. This second edition of the standard industry reference examines its newest advances: the growth of powder metallurgy and the advent of directionally solidified and single–crystal superalloys. Methodical and complete, the text moves from a description of the genesis and character of superalloys to a discussion of basic alloy systems, their behavior, surface stability, process metallurgy, as well as a look at the future of superalloys, Graduate students in materials science and engineers in the design aerospace, and research and chemical processing industries will find Superalloys II an indispensable guide to the metals that are fast becoming a cornerstone of our technology.
