Team develops predictive tool for designing complex metal alloys that can withstand extreme environments

Researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and North Carolina State University have developed a predictive tool to design complex metal alloys that can withstand extreme environments. By combining atomic-scale experiments with theoretical modeling, the tool forecasts how high-entropy alloys behave under high-temperature oxidation. This method streamlines the development of durable alloys for applications in aerospace and nuclear power. The research demonstrated that adding aluminum to the Cantor alloy enhances its oxidation resistance, paving the way for designing next-generation materials with superior performance.
