The properties of EME alloy in the form of contour-forged discs for the rotors of gas turbines were studied. The investigation was part of a series of such investigations undertaken because the properties of promising alloys are dependent to a considerable extent on the conditions of fabrication, and the size and shape of the rotor discs introduced fabrication procedures for which information was not available.
