1. Niobium silicide composite binary alloy matrix composite is a promising high-temperature
structural material. In this dual-phase composite, solution niobium provides room temperature
toughness while si2nb provides high-temperature strength. The composite has high
thermodynamic stability and microstructural stability at high temperature.
2. NbSi2 based superalloy has high melting point, low density and excellent comprehensive
properties. Its target service temperature is 200-300 ℃ higher than that of Ni based superalloy.
It is expected to be used in gas turbine engine blades working at 1300-1500 ℃ and hot end
components of aerospace vehicle scramjet engine.
3. The research and development idea of NbSi2 based superalloy is to form niobium based
solid solution / Nb5Si3 dual phase composite by adding ductile solid solution phase, which
can improve the room temperature toughness while maintaining excellent high temperature
