Ternary addition generally degrades an excellent conduction properties of NiAl. The contour map of thermal conductivity in NiAl-X β single phase field is drawn for the ternary elements X = Ti, Cu and Ge. It is revealed that each element has a characteristic ridge direction in the contour map. This feature is discussed based on the preference substitutional site of a ternary element, and eighteen ternary elements with a sufficient solubility into NiAl are classified into three groups according to the ridge direction. Thermal conductivity of NiAl-based alloys increases with increasing temperature, however the ridge direction in the contour map remains unchanged.
