I am doing a project on the subject above, and i am selecting one type of material that is currently popular used in gas turbine, but i found it difficult to select the material as there are too many nickel-based alloy that can be use for this application. Can anyone direct me with a suggestion on what type of materials should i choose and any specific link that can provide the properties of the material? Besides that, i am looking for development of turbine blade material used since 1940s until now, but i can't seems to find any relevant info on it. Can anyone share some info regarding this? by the way, from my readings, i found that nowadays, mostly turbine blade are produce to be single crystal plus enhancement of properties with coatings. Is this true for the application of aircraft engine turbine blade available nowadays?
