Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A simple model for describing the mechanical state associated with γ′-particles in Ni-Al superalloys is presented. The model is based on the properties of the anisotropic elastic Green function. The strain and stress fields produced by a single cubic particle are described. The self-energy for parallelepiped γ′-particles is calculated, finding the cubic geometry as the energetically most favorable particle shape. The anisotropy interaction between γ′-particles is investigated. The computed results are further examined considering the interaction energy between constituting elements of the particles. The configurational force acting on a γ′-particle during a creep test is analyzed. © World Scientific Publishing Company.
