Basic requirements for the selection of gas-turbine materials are defined. Alloy categories which meet the basic requirements for gas-turbine materials are discussed in detail. An evaluation of materials for critical gas-turbine components based on performance as well as limitations and future trends is presented. The dependence of future gas-turbine materials on the progress of gas-turbine metallurgy as well as gas-turbine design is strongly emphasized.
