Supporting data for strengthening and deformation behavior of as-cast CoCrCu1.5MnNi high entropy alloy with micro-/nanoscale precipitation
The data presented here is related to the research article entitled “Strengthening and deformation behavior of as-cast CoCrCu1.5MnNi high-entropy alloy (HEA) with micro-/nanoscale precipitation. Non-equimolar CoCrCu1.5MnNi was cast by the conventional induction melting under a high-purity Ar atmosphere. Scanning electron microscopy equipped with energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) were used for micro- and nanostructure characterization. Subsize tensile specimens with two different gage length to width ratio were tested at room and cryogenic temperatures to assess the accuracy of mechanical testing in the as-cast CoCrCu1.5MnNi HEAs. The mixing enthalpy (ΔHmix) versus lattice elastic energy (ΔHel) criterion was used to predict the stable phases. The data on the microstructural and nanostructural distribution of various phases on the strength and ductility in the as-cast HEA could be used in designing high entropy alloys with excellent as-cast mechanical properties.
