C6 Thermodynamics and kinetics of Ni- and Co-based superalloys: data integration and extension of data bases
Experimental and simulation data represent discrete data points, which show scatter and contain systematic errors. Physically-based models can correlate these data and to assess these data for consistency. This allows for safe extrapolation. This also allows to reduce the number of experiments required for the development of new materials and processes. With this objective project C6 continues its development of thermodynamic/kinetic data bases. New emphasis will be placed on the integration of mechanical data, with the objective to allow identifying statistically sound correlations between materials chemistry, microstructure and mechanical data. This provides crucial input for the alloy design tool which project C7 develops.
