    Available creep data for the refractory-metal alloys C-103 (Nb/10 percent Hf/1 percent Ti/0.7 percent Zr), ASTAR-811C (Ta/8 percent W/1 percent Re/0.7 percent Hf/0.025 percent C), W-5Re (W/5 percent Re), and W-25Re (W/25 percent Re) were correlated by the Orr-Sherby-Dorn method and extrapolated to 1 percent creep over 10 years. Useful life was specified to be 2 standard estimates of error below the mean surface through the data. Over the temperature range of 1200 to 1800 K, ASTAR-811C was found to be the strongest of these alloys. In particular, ASTAR-811C was found to have at 1800 K the same creep strength as W-25Re at 1420 K. The difference between these results and those of Horak and Booker likely devolves from the comparative lack of long-time data on tungsten alloys.

    Research highlights: → Low net thermal expansion bimetallic structural lattice constructed. → Temperatures on the order of 1000 deg. C reached. → Improved silicide coating for niobium alloy developed. - Abstract: The fabrication and high temperature performance of low thermal expansion bimetallic lattices composed of Co-base and Nb-base alloys have been investigated. A 2D sheet lattice with a coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) lower than the constituent materials of construction was designed for thermal cycling to 1000 deg. C with the use of elastic-plastic finite element analyses. The low CTE lattice consisted of a continuous network of the Nb-base alloy C-103 with inserts of high CTE Co-base alloy Haynes 188. A new coating approach wherein submicron alumina particles were incorporated into (Nb, Cr, Fe) silicide coatings was employed for oxidation protection of the Nb-base alloy. Thermal gravimetric analysis results indicate that the addition of submicron alumina particles reduced the oxidative mass gain by a factor of four during thermal cycling, increasing lifetime. Bimetallic cells with net expansion of 6 x 10 -6 /deg. C and 1 x 10 -6 /deg. C at 1000 deg. C were demonstrated and their measured thermal expansion characteristics were consistent with analytical models and finite element analysis predictions.
