IN718 is a nickel-based superalloy composed of approximately 53 wt% Ni, 19 wt% Fe, 18 wt% Cr, 5 wt% Nb, and small amounts of Ti, Mo, Co, and Al. The alloy has a number of distinct phases present in its microstructure. These are namely the matrix, γ, and the precipitates, γ', γ'', and δ. The primary strengthening phase is γ'' , the composition of which is Ni3Nb. It has a body-centred tetragonal structure, and forms semi-coherently as disc-shaped platelets within the γ matrix, having t
