Miscellaneous about Jet Engines:

Exhaust Gas Temperature ( EGT): a measure of an engine's efficiency in producing its design level of thrust. The higher EGT, the more wear, oxidation, and deterioration. (more detail)

Superalloys used in the gas turbine application generally operate at 85-90% of their melting temperature, how can they survive? Check (engineering of superalloys)
