Alloy 718 is a polycrystalline, precipitation strengthened Ni-based superalloy used for aircraft engine turbine discs. High-temperature yield strength and creep resistance are achieved by precipitation of nanoscale γ'- (L12 Ni3(Al,Ti)) and γ"- (D022 Ni3(Nb)) particles via coherency and anti-phase boundary strengthening. Compared to conventional ageing, yield strength increments of +10% are achieved via direct ageing by changes in the δ-phase volume fraction, dislocation density, and γ'- and γ"-precipitate duplet and triplet morphology.
However, the detailed γ'- and γ"-precipitate nucleation and growth mechanisms during direct ageing of Alloy 718 remain unknown. Therefore, various high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HR-TEM) and atom probe microscopy (APM) techniques were used to study the early stages of precipitation for γ'- and γ"-particle volume fraction, radii, density, and morphology. A qualitative microstructural model is introduced to discuss heterogeneous versus homogeneous precipitate nucleation and growth, based on dislocation-precipitate interaction and γ'- and γ"-precipitate morphology evolution.
