There is increasing interest in the use of high performance Ni-based alloys for exhaust valve applications in the next generation, higher efficiency automotive engines at 870<SUP>o</SUP>C and higher temperatures. Materials used in this application should not only have sufficient strength and microstructural stability at these temperatures but should be lower in cost than traditional Ni-based superalloys. This talk will present the results from an <I>in-situ </I> Ultra-small-angle(USAXS)/SAXS/WAXS study of γ' evolution in a model Ni-based alloy with lower Ni levels. Implications for the development of alloys for service in exhaust valve applications will be presented.
