The ADVANCE Project

The Project

The Project


  • WP1 enabled the dissemination and exploitation of the ADVANCE findings and was devised to ensure lean, efficient, and effective management of the project.
  • WP2 was dedicated to sample preparation, in other words, to carefully generate the samples that was used later for detailed analysis in WP3, WP4, and WP5. This included levitation melting from high purity metals, equilibrium heat treatments, and full compositional analysis on different length scales for both as melted alloys and equilibrated samples.
  • WP3 dealt with ex situ metallographic inspection, using state-of-the-art techniques for determination of phases, phase fractions, phase constitution, and phase transition temperatures.
  • WP4 focused on analysis by in situ HEXRD experiments to determine the qualitative and quantitative phase constitution, phase transitions, and ordering/disordering temperatures with a special emphasis on the formation of the ordered ω phase.
  • In WP5, ex situ metallographic inspection used high-resolution techniques to accurately determine phases present, their constitution, and the orientation relationship to each other. WP3, WP4, and WP5 complement each other.
  • WP6 used the results from WP3, WP4, and WP5, that is, the data determined under different conditions (for example, on stable phases, phase fractions, phase constitution, and phase transition temperatures) and performed CALPHAD assessments including parameter optimization for individual subsystems. These updated descriptions were merged into an advanced CALPHAD database.
