Item description for The Microstructure of Superalloys by M. Durand-charre...
Presents all the main aspects of the microstructure of nickel-base superalloys, and includes micrographs chosen from among a large range of commercial and academic alloys, from the as-cast product to in-situ components, worn from in-service use. Including more than 100 illustrations, the text explains all the transformation mechanisms involved in the origination (creation) of microstructures during solidification or heat treatments (crystallization paths, segregation, crystal orientation, precipitation, TCP, coarsening and rafting, etc.). It includes up-to-date information and data such as phase diagrams, crystallographic structures, and relationships with functional properties. Nearly 300 references provide a key to further investigation.

More About M. Durand-charre
Madeleine Durand-Charre gained her Docteur-??s-Sciences degree at the Institut National Polytechnique in Grenoble, where she spent the remainder of her career as a teacher and research worker in the field of structural metallurgy. Her special interests concern the fundamental aspects of phase equilibria and their relationship to the microstructure of complex commercial alloys. Due to her combined teaching and research activities, one of her permanent preoccupations is to explain the mechanisms involved in the formation of microstructures and to illustrate them with the aid of examples either from simple systems or from more complex industrial materials. The present book concerning the microstructures of iron-base alloys is abundantly illustrated with explicit macro- and micrographs, emanating both from her own laboratory and from her numerous academic and industrial contacts. Madeleine Durand-Charre has previously published a similar monograph concerning the microstructure of superalloys.
