Jet engine turbine blade. This steel alloy component is engineered to withstand the high-temperature and corrosive environment of an aircraft jet engine. This is achieved by growing it as a single steel alloy crystal, in this case iron (Fe) alloyed with other transition metal elements such as tungsten (W), hafnium (Hf), tantalum (Ta) and rhenium (Re). This is a Rolls-Royce RB.211-524H turbine blade that has been used to power a turbofan engine's high-pressure compressor. The turbine operates at 11,000 revolutions per minutes, at temperatures of 1600 degrees Celsius, with a scheduled life cycle of 30,000 hours.
