    Abstract

    Improvements in the high-temperature mechanical properties of a typical cobalt-base alloy were achieved by the addition of rare earths as misch metal. Three alloys of the same base composition but with 0 to 2 per cent rare earth added were cast from a split heat. Stress-rupture tests were run at 1500, 1600, and 1700 F.

    The high-temperature strength as well as ductility were increased in both as-cast and aged material at all temperatures, with the greatest benefit occurring at 1500 F. No improvements in room temperature tensile properties were noted.
