Project Title: Developing Machinability Methods for Advanced Aerospace Nickel Superalloys
Academic Supervisor: Dr Martin Jackson
AMRC Supervisors: Dr Chris Taylor and Dr Pete Crawforth
Industrial Sponsor: Carpenter Technology, Rolls-Royce plc
The project aims to further understand the link between the microstructure of Nickel Superalloy materials and their Machinability. The project aims to correlate the grain size and precipitate morphologies within the microstructure and the cutting forces and subsurface damage after a machining process has taken place.
