ADVANCE: Sophisticated experiments and optimisation to advance an existing CALPHAD database for next generation TiAl alloys

Project description

A comprehensive thermodynamic database of titanium aluminide alloys supports aircraft design

Alloys based on titanium aluminide (TiAl) have received increasing attention for aerospace applications over the last few decades thanks to their excellent corrosion and oxidation resistance combined with high strength-to-weight ratio. Harnessing the potential of these unique metals will be significantly faster, easier and more effective with a comprehensive database of their thermodynamic properties. The EU-funded ADVANCE project is addressing this pressing need. The project will deliver two optimised and advanced calculation of phase diagrams (CALPHAD) databases by filling in identified gaps in an existing TiAl thermodynamic database and updating another.
