Most modern single crystal alloys are thermodynamically unstable with respect to the formation of topologically close-packed (TCP) phases due to the addition of solid solution strengtheners, such as rhenium, molybdenum and tungsten. The occurrence, nucleation and growth of TCP phases in a number of rhenium-containing second generation alloys have been studied. It has been found that all the alloys form the σ phase; in some cases as a meta-stable intermediate. Most go on to form either the μ of P phase, depending on the alloy composition, the second phase nucleating from the σ phase. The structure of the σ phase is shown to depend on the fit between the γ matrix and the σ phase and it is suggested that alloys which show good lattice fit suffer accelerated TCP precipitation.
