DOE researchers develop new super-alloy

New alloy increases strength by up to 90%, elongation by 300% Metal Tech News – July 14, 2021

Scientists at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, have found a way to simultaneously increase an alloy's strength and ductility, a measure of a material's ability to stretch and be hammered thin without breaking.

"A holy grail of structural materials has long been, 'how do you simultaneously enhance strength and ductility?'" said Eas...
