The excellent mechanical properties of powder metallurgy superalloys strongly depend on the microstructure, grain size, morphology, and size distribution of the γ' precipitates. In this study, the effects of cooling rate on strength and microstructure of powder metallurgy superalloys were investigated. Articles were reviewed about this topic and they all were evaluated. Different types of powder metallurgy superalloys such as FGH4096, U720LI, UDIMET 500, MAR-M247, K465, IN738LC, Rene88DT, CM247LC and K5 were selected for this study. These materials were tested in different parameters (temperature and time) and different cooling rates were applied. Test results showed that cooling rate has considerable effects on strength and microstructure of powder metallurgy superalloys. It was observed that the strength increased by the increment of cooling rate. Also, almost homogeneous microstructure was obtained at high cooling rate.
