The role of coherency loss on rafting of superalloys under high temperature low stress creep conditions is investigated by phase-field crystal plasticity simulations. It is demonstrated that coalescence, critically depending on the state of coherency between precipitate and matrix is crucial to understand the rafting behavior of superalloys. An explicit mechanisms is developed predicting coherency loss based on the plastic activity in the matrix. The simulations are verified using experimental creep test results.
