Abstract: The chemical, physical, and mechanical characteristics of nickel-based superalloys are reviewed with emphasis on the use of this class of materials within turbine engines. The role of major and minor alloying additions in multicomponent commercial cast and wrought superalloys is discussed. Microstructural stability and phases observed during processing and in subsequent elevated-temperature service are summarized. Processing paths and recent advances in processing are addressed. Mechanical properties and deformation mechanisms are reviewed, including tensile properties, creep, fatigue, and cyclic crack growth. I. Introduction N ICKEL-BASED superalloys are an unusual class of metallic materials with an exceptional combination of hightemperature strength, toughness, and resistance to degradation in corrosive or oxidizing environments. These materials are widely used in aircraft and power-generation turbines, rocket engines, and other challenging environments, including nuclear power and chemical processing plants. Intensive alloy and process development activities during the past few decades have resulted in alloys that can tolerate average temperatures of 1050 ◦ C with occasional excursions (or local hot spots near airfoil tips) to temperatures as high as 1200 ◦ C, 1 which is approximately 90% of the melting point of the material. The underlying aspects of microstructure and composition that result in these exceptional properties are briefly reviewed here. Major classes of superalloys that are utilized in gas-turbine engines and the corresponding processes for their production are outlined along with characteristic mechanical and physical properties. more

Abstract: The increasing penetration of variable-speed wind turbines in the electricity grid will result in a reduction of the number of connected conventional power plants. This will require changes in the way the grid frequency is controlled. In this letter, a method is proposed to let variable-speed wind turbines emulate inertia and support primary frequency control. The required power is obtained from the kinetic energy stored in the rotating mass of the turbine blades. more

Abstract: The science and technology of thermal barrier coatings has advanced considerably since reports of the first test on turbine blades in a research engine in 1976. Today thermal barrier coatings are flying in revenue service in a low risk location within the turbine section of certain gas turbine engines. The state-of-the-art coating system for gas turbine applications is currently a plasma-sprayed ZrO 2 -(6%–8%) Y 2 O 3 ceramic layer over an MCrAlY (M ≡ Ni, Co or NiCo) bond coat layer plasma sprayed at low pressure. Although the potential for meeting current and short-term goals is high, longer-range goals may not be attainable with current coating concepts. These longer-range goals will involve high risk designs where coating loss could lead directly to component loss. Several steps must be taken to help meet these goals. Improved understanding of coating failure mechanisms is required. Models are needed to predict lifetimes. Process automation and quality control procedures must be instituted. Finally, new concepts in plasma-sprayed coatings must be developed and alternatives to the plasma- spraying process may be required. The current status of thermal barrier coatings and prospects for future progress in the above areas are summarized. more

Abstract: The Natural Excitation Technique (NExT) is a method of modal testing that allows structures to be tested in their ambient environments This report is a compilation of developments and results since 1990, and contains a new theoretical derivation of NExT, as well as a verification using analytically generated data In addition, we compare results from NExT with conventional modal testing for a parked, vertical-axis wind turbine, and, for a rotating turbine, NExT is used to calculate the model parameters as functions of the rotation speed, since substantial damping is derived from the aeroelastic interactions during operation Finally, we compare experimental results calculated using NExT with analytical predictions of damping using aeroelastic theory more
