Appendix: Mechanical Behavior of High-Entropy Alloys—Questions and Answers
This chapter, presented in a question-and-answer format, covers many practical aspects of high-entropy alloys (HEAs). It provides clear and concise answers to more than 50 questions, imparting knowledge on alloying elements, heat treatments, diffusion mechanisms, phase formation, lattice distortion, crystal and grain structures, structure-property relationships, microstructure control, and characterization methods. It likewise explains how to calculate the effect of strengthening processes on the mechanical properties of HEAs and offers insights on how to balance strength, ductility, and density for specific applications. It also provides information on twinning behaviors, stacking faults, elastic properties, coating and film deposition methods, manufacturing challenges, and the use of computational techniques for alloy design.
