For jet engines to meet the ever-increasing demands of ecological compatibility, the compositions of Ni-base single-crystal superalloys have continuously evolved to cope with the increase in turbine entry temperature (TET) owing to the design that improve the thermodynamic efficiency of gas turbine engines. Over the past decade, the addition of Ru has been one of the main subjects of focus to enhance the temperature capability and contribute to the development of new generations of

TMS-238 is a promising candidate alloy for future turbine blade applications because it exhibits excellent and well-balanced mechanical and environmental properties.
