The present study was concerned with three major areas: 1. An adaptation of the above equipment for environmental control was made by fabricating a suitable atmosphere chamber 2. Fatigue-type date were obtained for a series of solid solution nickel alloys as tested in both inert and oxidizing a atmospheres at 1500F. It was anticipated that this data would show the effect of different environmental conditions upon the mechanical behavior of these alloys at elevated temperature 3. Metallography and electron probe micro-analysis were performed on the above specimens to form a more quantitative means of evaluating the design of materials for high temperature applications
