A computational high-throughput search for new ternary superalloys

In 2006, a novel cobalt-based superalloy was discovered [1] with mechanical properties better than some conventional nickel-based superalloys. As with conventional superalloys, its high performance arises from the precipitate-hardening effect of a coherent L12 phase, which is in two-phase equilibrium with the fcc matrix. Inspired by this unexpected… (More)
