Abstract:

An investigation was conducted to study the effect of explosive shock loading on the microstructure and mechanical properties of subsequently age- hardened Udimet 700 nickel-base superalloy. Such shock thermomechanical processing TMP has been termed shock-aging. The results of shock TMP, conventional TMP by cold rolling, and thermal processing alone, were compared. U-700 sheet was subjected to a planar plastic shock wave, or rolled to a strain equivalent to the transient shock strain, in each of three initial conditions solution treated, gamma aged, or carbide aged.
