Abstract

Boron has been used to refine the microstructures in TiAl castings, such as low-pressure turbine (LPT) blades, to improve mechanical properties. However, boride precipitates with undesirable morphologies could reduce ductility and even entirely remove the benefits of grain refinement. Boride size an...
