CoCrFeNi Multi-principal Element Alloy Prepared Via Self-propagating High-Temperature Synthesis Plus Investment Casting Method

A CoCrFeNi multi-principal element alloy was successfully prepared via the combination of self-propagating high-temperature synthesis and investment casting. The phase identification, the as-cast microstructure, and the solidification phenomena were investigated. Unlike the dendrite morphology obtained by arc melting, cellular growth in the as-cast alloy was observed as a consequence of the rapid solidification. The solidification process is discussed with regard to the rate of advance of the liquid–solid interface, the equilibrium melting range, and the interface temperature gradient.
