Heat-resistant alloys are arbitrarily defined as iron alloys
richer in alloy content than the 18 percent chromium, 8 percent
nickel types, or as alloys with a base element other than iron and
which are intended for elevated-temperature
This chapter contains strength properties and related characteristics of wrought heat-resistant alloy products used in aerospace vehicles. The strength properties are those commonly used in structural design, such as tension, compression, bearing, and shear. The effects of elevated temperature are presented. Factors such as metallurgical considerations influencing the selection of metals are included in comments preceding the specific properties of each alloy or alloy group. Data on creep, stress-rupture, and fatigue strength, as well as crack-growth characteristics, are presented in the applicable alloy section.
