Abstract

Materials applied at high temperatures and severe environments became a scientific and technologic requirement nowadays. Literature relates studies that have been done independent of commercial objectives to improve the development of new alloys and to reevaluate the existent commercial alloys, through data acquisition in extreme conditions. Superalloys have many alloying elements in appreciable amounts. Among them, what deserves national prominence is niobium, since Brazil is the largest producer of niobium ore and has the largest niobium mineral reserve in the world. This project aims to evaluate and correlate the microstructure and mechanical behavior of the conventional (tantalum) and niobium-modified (replacing tantalum atoms with niobium atoms, since both have similar physical and chemical properties) MAR-M246 nickel-based superalloys. The isothermal and cyclic oxidation tests will be performed under different temperature and time conditions. Thermodynamic simulations using JMatPro software will allow understanding the phases present in the microstructure and the oxidation mechanisms of superalloys. The results obtained will allow to analyze, understand and verify the viability of replacement of tantalum by niobium in the microsctructure, oxidation behavior during isothermal and cyclic oxidation and mechanical properties of the superalloys.
