A team of experienced NETL metallurgical researchers were presenters at the 10th International Symposium on Superalloy 718 and Derivatives 2023 May 14-17 in Pittsburgh.
The conference was designed to explore all aspects of metallurgical processing, materials behavior, and microstructural performance for a distinct class of 718-type superalloy and derivatives, which have demonstrated excellent fabricability and heat resistant properties for products like turbine engine disks.
Symposium topics covered broad industrial applications for a cross-section of industries, including supply chain, energy and aerospace.
NETL researchers have a long record of success in advanced alloy development and have demonstrated and deployed alloys with improved performance capabilities for energy applications, aerospace, defense and bio-medical applications.
The Laboratory has also implemented technologies to improve melting and casting practices. Lab experts use an integrated alloy development approach that incorporates computational materials engineering, manufacturing at scale, and performance assessment at condition to develop alloys solutions that enable advanced technologies.
NETL’s Paul Jablonski served on the organizing committee for the symposium.
NETL personnel who participated in the symposium and the titles of their presentations were:
NETL drives innovation and delivers technological solutions for an environmentally sustainable and prosperous energy future. By using its world-class talent and research facilities, NETL is ensuring affordable, abundant and reliable energy that drives a robust economy and national security, while developing technologies to manage carbon across the full life cycle, enabling environmental sustainability for all Americans.
