As-cast buckets of Guy alloy, a cast nickel-base material, were run in a J33-9 turbojet engine for cycles of 15 minutes at rated speed and 5 minutes at idle speed. Stress rupture, impace and engine-performance data indicate that Guy alloy may be considered for bucket use at a temperature of 1650 degrees F. Ductility and impact strength of Guy alloy is limited but appears to be adequate for bucket applications.
