The surface tension and the viscosity of the Ni-Based superalloys LEK94 and CMSX-10 were measured by the oscillating drop method in a containerless electromagnetic processing device on board a parabolic flight. Surface oscillations were recorded by 150 and 200 Hz frame rate digital cameras positioned in two perpendicular directions and by the inductive coupling between the oscillating sample surface and the oscillating circuit of the radio-frequency heating and positioning generator. The surface tension as a function of temperature of LEK94 and CMSX-10 was obtained as s(T) = 1.72 - 4.20 x 10-4 (T – 1656 K) Nm-1 and s(T) = 1.71 - 4.23 x 10-4 (T – 1683 K) Nm-1, respectively. The viscosities at the liquidus temperatures as 9.8 and 7.8 mPa.s, respectively. In addition some basic thermophysical properties such as solidus and liquidus temperatures, densities at room temperature and thermal expansion will be reported.
