Phase Equilibria and Microstructure on γ' Phase in Co-Ni-Al-W System
Phase equilibria between the γ and γ′ phases at 900°C in the Co-(10–70)Ni-Al-W system were determined by electron probe microanalysis (EPMA) and X-ray diffractometry (XRD). It was found that the γ′ phase with L1<SUB>2</SUB> structure continuously exists from the Co side to the Ni side in Co-Ni-Al-W system and that it widens to the low W region with increasing Ni content. The partition of Al into the γ′ phase increased with Ni content, while the W changed from a γ′ former to a γ former by increase of Ni content. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) measurements also revealed that the γ′ solvus temperature increases with Ni content, while the solidus temperature is hardly affected by such content. The lattice parameter of the γ and γ′ phases and the mismatch decreased with increasing Ni content, which caused the morphologic change of the γ′ precipitates from cubes to spheres.
