  1. 1. Varestraint Weldability Testing of Cast Superalloys

    Author : Sukhdeep Singh; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Varestraint; Hot Cracking; Welding; Alloy 718; Cast Superalloys; ATI® 718 PlusTM; HIP;

    Abstract : Precipitation hardened Ni- and Ni-Fe- based superalloys, used in hot structural components for aero engines, are subjected to hot cracking phenomena during manufacturing and specifically in welding. This type of cracking involves metallurgical reactions from the liquid phase in concomitance to weld restraints. READ MORE

  2. 2. Weldability of Precipitation Hardening Superalloys – Influence of Microstructure

    Author : Joel Håkan Andersson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hot cracking; GTAW; Transvarestraint testing; Varestraint testing; Gleeble testing; Solidification cracking; HAZ liquation cracking; Repair welding; Strain age cracking; EBW; DSC thermal analysis;

    Abstract : Superalloys and in particular the precipitation hardened Ni-based superalloys havealways been used extensively in the hot sections of jet engines. Large hot structuralengine components with complex geometry have preferably been cast as single piececomponents since the large scale vacuum investment casting process becameavailable about fifty years ago.

  3. 3. Weldability and Testing Methodology in Precipitation Hardening Superalloys

    Author : Jonny Jacobsson; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Weldability; Alloy 718; ATI® 718Plus™ and Haynes® 282®; Superalloys; Varestraint; Waspaloy®;

    Abstract : Usable weldability data is desired in the manufacturing industry, especially within the aerospace industry where fabrication of structural jet engine components are realized. Welding of precipitation hardening superalloys such as Waspaloy®, Alloy 718, ATI® 718Plus™ and Haynes® 282® in particular can lead to solidification cracking in the fusion zone, liquation cracking in the heat affected zone and/or to solid state cracking.

  4. 4. Hot Cracking and Grain Boundary Weaknesses of Nickel - Based Superalloys

    Author : Joel Håkan Andersson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Hot cracks; Notch rupture testing; Eutectic; Weldability; Varestraint testing; Grain boundary weaknesses; Superalloys;

    Abstract : Abstract Grain boundary weaknesses of nickel-based superalloys not only materialize during service in the hot turbine engine sections but also during the weld manufacturing. The performance, in this respect, of the most commonly used alloys at Volvo Aero Corporation (VAC), 718 and the higher temperature capacity Waspaloy, are therefore the main subjects for this thesis.

  5. 5. Weldability of Cast Superalloys - Effect of homogenization heat treatments on hot cracking susceptibility of cast Alloy 718, ATI® 718Plus®, and Haynes® 282®

    Author : Sukhdeep Singh; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Hot ductility; Segregation; Homogenization; Boron; Gleeble; Welding; Nickel-based superalloys; Varestraint; Hot cracking; Hot isostatic pressing; Niobium;

    Abstract : Precipitation hardened Ni- and Ni–Fe-based superalloys are used in high-temperature sections of aero engines owing to their superior mechanical properties compared to those of the other alloys. However, their better mechanical performance is accompanied by its own challenges during the manufacturing process. READ MORE
