Plenary Speaker at SuperAlloys2022

Dr. J.C. Stinville will give a plenary talk at SuperAlloys2022 on Plastic localization and Fatigue Strength in Polycrystalline Nickel-Based Superalloys. Abstract: Correlations between fatigue strength and monotonic strengths such as yield strength and ultimate tensile strength exist for polycrystalline face-centered cubic (fcc) and hexagonal close-packed (hcp) alloys. It is observed that fatigue strength increases with …
