**Abstract Scope** |
Phase prediction from simulation can greatly assist the development of high entropy alloys (HEAs). The Monte Carlo algorithm provides a general method to find the stable phases of a material. An efficient Monte Carlo (MC) method using ab-initio energies is proposed for studies of phase formation in HEAs. We apply this MC method for multiple HEAs, e.g., HfNbTaTiZr and NiFeCrCoMn, and obtain stable phase predictions. Further density functional theory (DFT) calculations are performed to give insight into the prediction of phase stability of the HEAs. |
