Influence of Processing on the Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of a NbAl3-Base AlloyInduction melting and rapid solidification processing, followed by grinding to 75-micron powder and P/M consolidation, have been used to produce a multiphase, NbAl3-based, oxidation-resistant alloy of Nb-67Al-7Cr-0.5Y-0.25W composition whose strength and ductility are significantly higher than those of the induction-melted alloy at test temperatures of up to 1200 K. Attention is given to the beneficial role of microstructural refinement; the major second phase, AlNbCr, improves both oxidation resistance and mechanical properties.
