- Ternary single-phase concentrated solid solution alloys (SP-CSAs), so-called "medium entropy alloys", not only possess notable mechanical and physical properties but also form a model system linking the relatively simple binary alloys to the complex high entropy alloys. Our knowledge of their intrinsic properties is vital to understand the material behavior and to prompt future applications. To this end, three model alloys NiCoFe, NiCoCr, and NiFe-20Cr have been selected and grown as single crystals. We measured their elastic constants using an ultrasonic method, and several key materials properties, such as shear modulus, bulk modulus, elastic anisotropy, and Debye temperatures have been derived. Furthermore, nanoindentation tests have been performed on these three alloys together with Ni, NiCo and NiFe on their (100) surface, to investigate the strengthening mechanisms. NiCoCr has the highest hardness, NiFe, NiCoFe and NiFe-20Cr share a similar hardness that is apparently lower than NiCoCr; NiCo has the lowest hardness in the alloys, which is similar to elemental Ni. The Labusch-type solid solution model has been applied to interpret the nanoindentation data, with two approaches used to calculate the lattice mismatch. Finally, by adopting an interatomic spacing matrix method, the Labusch model can reasonably predict the hardening effects for the whole set of materials.
