Characterisation and modelling of gamma prime precipitates
This main aim of this project is to explore the relationship among: (i) the heat treatment parameters; (ii) γ/γ’ microstructural characteristics; and (iii) mechanical properties for nickel-base superalloy.
This understanding will help to optimise heat treatment parameter and that generates an ideal γ/γ’ microstructure having the best mechanical properties.
