NASA Alloy GRX-810, an oxide dispersion strengthened (ODS) alloy, can reportedly endure temperatures over 1093C, is more malleable, and can survive more than 1,000 times longer than existing alloys.

The team applied thermodynamic modelling and leveraged Additive Manufacturing to develop the new high-temperature alloy. Using thermodynamic modelling, one of many computational tools discussed within the NASA 2040 Vision Study, the team discovered the optimal alloy composition after only thirty simulations.
