Industrial Colloquium of the SFB/TR 103

Superalloys represent key materials for turbine blades in modern gas turbines for aero engines and power plants. International mobility and global energy supply rely on this fascinating class of high temperature materials. Improvements in efficiency and emissions demand new concepts for alloy design and fabrication technology.

The Industrial Colloquium of the SFB/TR 103 organized by the Chair of Materials Science and Engineering for Metals (WTM) was held from 6-7 March 2018 in Fürth, Germany. The colloquium brought together researchers of the collaborative research center SFB/TR 103 „From Atoms to Turbine Blades“and industrial users to accomplish improvements in this field.

The topics included current developments in industry presented by invited speakers from Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery AB, Rolls-Royce Deutschland, Thermo-Calc Software AB, MTU Aero Engines GmbH and MAN Diesel & Turbo SE. These presentations were extended by current research results from the SFB/TR 103. This mixture enabled the interchange of experiences and requirements in material and process development in the field of Ni- and Co-base superalloys taking future trends in developing, processing and application of these extraordinary materials into account.
