Energy storage: A short potted history of modern structural intermetallic alloys

International Seminars of Frontiers in Materials Science UPM-CIE Moncloa


Title: A short potted history of modern structural intermetallic alloys

Date: Monday 31th March at 09:30

Place: E.T.S. Civil Engineering, basement 1

Speaker: David G. Morris

Free admission

Following a brief introduction to ordered alloys and intermetallics, some of their typical characteristics and properties will be presented. The need for high temperature structural materials capable of operating in more-demanding conditions, at higher temperature, at higher stresses, and in more aggressive environments, will be discussed and the possibility of meeting these needs by using structural intermetallics will be shown. Specific examples of the development and use of Titanium aluminides (gTiAl-based), Molybdenum silicides (Mo3Si-based) and Iron aluminides (FeAl-based) will be shown.

The engineering success of these intermetallics has come through the use of composite approaches to balance strength, toughness/ductility, and oxidation/corrosion resistance, in applications where traditional materials have been unable to meet demands, and following a long period of education of design engineers.
