Basic Compounds for Superalloys: Mechanical Properties explores the mechanical properties of the iron group based intermetallic compounds that are the basis of super-alloys. Chapters explore tensile tests and compressive stress and hardness and provide detailed considerations that are devoted to time dependent deformation, namely creep and cyclic deformation. In addition, a discussion of the nano-crystalline L12 and B2 structures and their mechanical properties is included. Fracture and failure of these materials in both macro and nano-iron based compounds is also considered. This book is ideal for engineers, scientists and technical personnel who work in materials engineering, materials science, and mechanical and chemical engineering.

Key Features

  • Provides an in-depth focus on the mechanical properties of Fe- superalloy materials
  • Includes a discussion of the static, time dependent and cyclic deformation properties of macro- and nano materials
  • Reviews how superalloy materials behave under a variety of ‘in-service’ environments and conditions


Students, engineers, scientists and technical persons in the fields of: Materials Engineering, Material Science; Mechanics and Mechanical Engineers, Chemical Engineers, Physicists

About the Author

Joshua Pelleg

Joshua Pelleg received his B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering at the Technion - Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel; a M.Sc. in Metallurgy at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, IL and a Ph.D. in Metallurgy at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI. He has been in the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) Materials Engineering Department in Beer-Sheva, Israel since 1970, and was among the founders of the department, and served as its second chairman. Professor Pelleg was the recipient of the Samuel Ayrton Chair in Metallurgy. He specializes in the mechanical properties of materials and the diffusion and defects in solids. He has chaired several university committees and served four terms as the Chairman of Advanced Studies at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. Prior to his work at BGU, Pelleg acted as Assistant Professor and then Associate Professor in the Department of Materials and Metallurgy at the University of Kansas, Lawrence, KS. Professor Pelleg was also a Visiting Professor: in the Department of Metallurgy at Iowa State University; at the Institute for Atomic Research, US Atomic Energy Commission, Ames, IA; at McGill University, Montreal, QC; at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Applied Electronics Department, Yokohama, Japan; and in Curtin University, Department of Physics, Perth, Australia. His non-academic research and industrial experience includes: Chief Metallurgist in Urdan Metallurgical Works Ltd., Netanyah, Israel; Research Engineer in International Harvester Manufacturing Research, Chicago, IL; Associate Research Officer for the National Research Council of Canada, Structures and Materials, National Aeronautical Establishment, Ottawa, ON; Physics Senior Research Scientist, Nuclear Research Center, Beer-Sheva, Israel; Materials Science Division, Argonne National Labs, Argonne, IL; Atomic Energy of Canada, Chalk River, ON; Visiting Scientist, CSIR, National Accelerator Centre, Van de Graaf Group Faure, South Africa; Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill, NJ; and GTE Laboratories, Waltham, MA. His current research interests are diffusion in solids, thin film deposition and properties (mostly by sputtering) and the characterization of thin films, among them various silicides.
