Addition of Ru in Ni-base single crystal superalloys had been used to improve the elevated temperature strength and other properties. Significant decreases in stacking fault energy of the γ phase and the volume fraction of γ' phase were observed with the addition of Ru in the superalloys. As well as serving as an effective solid-solution strengthening element in Ni-base single crystal superalloys, Ru-addition was able to effectively strengthen both the γ and γ' phases and suppress the formation of TCP phases. Due to the changes in partitioning behavior of elements and the slight decrease in supersaturation of refractory elements in γ phase with addition of Ru, the creep resistance and microstructural stability of the alloy were improved remarkably. The influence of Ru on microstructure of Ni-base single crystal superalloys was reviewed.
