Waspaloy is currently one of the more widely used alloys for turbine disk applications in the aerospace industry. However, higher engine performance demands by aircraft engine manufacturers have resulted in a number of approaches by material suppliers to upgrade the alloy. These approaches range from simple compositional modifications to a combination of chemistry modifications coupled with thermal mechanical processing. One such approach resulted in what is now commonly referred to as Super Waspaloy.
Tension, low-cycle fatigue, and creep rupture tests of Waspaloy and Super Waspaloy forgings were conducted from room temperature to 1089 K (1500°F), after which material properties were reviewed and correlated with the disk microstructure.
