Temperature dependence of lattice mismatch and gamma' volume fraction of a fourth-generation monocrystalline nickel-based superalloy

The strain distribution in a new generation nickel-based single crystal superalloy has been determined in the temperature range 293K–1598K. Measurements have been performed using diffraction of high energy synchrotron radiation (150keV, λ = 0.008 nm) to determine the variations with temperature of the γ/γ′ lattice mismatch and of the γ′ volume fraction. The chemical segregation at the dendrite scale and the internal stress induce a large range of values for the lattice mismatch. The measurements of the γ′ volume fraction determined by X-ray diffraction are in agreement with those obtained by atom probe tomography, image analysis or computation.
