Abstract

Nickel based superalloys have been utilised within numerous industrial sectors from power generation to chemical processing plants for over four decades as a result of their ability to retain mechanical properties at arduous temperatures alongside excellent oxidation and corrosion resistance. Within the aerospace industry, they have been primarily used within regions of the gas turbine engine where metal temperatures can often exceed 1000°C and high temperature deformation mechanics are prominent. Although typically manufactured using traditional wrought and casting methodologies, the aerospace industry has become increasingly interested in the use of Additive Layer Manufacturing (ALM) as a means of fabrication to take advantage of the numerous benefits that ALM has to offer. Detailed characterisation of the structural integrity of components processed via additive processes is a key requirement of the understanding. In this paper, the small punch creep (SPC) test has been applied to samples of a high gamma prime containing nickel-based superalloy manufactured using the laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) process. Several different builds are investigated and ranked, with ALM builds provided in different epitaxial orientations and with contrasting process parameters to help determine the optimal process parameters.
