Abstract

The discrete cosine transform (DCT) is known to be able to express the relation curve between creep strain and time, or the relation curve between creep strain rate and time very well. Moreover, recently it has been found out that the DCT can draw electron density distribution maps of crystals. In addition, the DCT always passes through all the points measured at an equal interval in any continuous curves and its interpolated values between adjacent points are very reasonable. Furthermore, a new prediction method for long term creep curves from short term creep data by using the DCT was reported at TurboExpo2020. Up to the present, the strength of single crystal Nickel based superalloys for gas turbines at elevated temperatures has been advanced by controlling the interface dislocation density and the lattice misfit at the γ/γ’ interfaces. For this reason, it has to be understood how to evaluate a relationship between interface dislocation density and creep strain rate to develop more advanced single crystal Nickel based superalloys. Therefore, in this research it was studied how to evaluate the relationship between interface dislocation density and creep strain rate of a single crystal Nickel based superalloy for gas turbines by using the DCT. As a result, useful properties on the effective stress have been obtained from the coefficients of the DCT.
