Providing single-phase microstructures, dislocation mediated plasticity and varying atomic size differences δ in a wide range, NbMoCrTiAl and its derivatives are well-suited for investigating the impact of lattice distortion on solid solution strengthening in highly concentrated bcc alloys. The atomic size difference as a measure for the extent of lattice distortion was varied by systematically adjusting the Cr and Nb concentration in the quinary system Nb-Mo-Cr-Ti-Al. The investigated alloys were arc melted and homogenized to attain a single-phase microstructure. The determined interatomic spacings were used to recalculate the atomic radii for obtaining suitable values for δ of all alloys. The contribution of lattice distortion to solid solution strengthening was shown by correlating of δ with the according microhardness. Temperature-dependence of mechanical properties was further studied by nanoindentation and compression tests in the range between room temperature and 1200 °C to confirm the correlation of δ and athermal strength.
