Constant-velocity and constant-load compression tests have been conducted to examine the mechanical behavior of polycrystalline IrAl and Ir1-xNixAl at ambient and elevated temperatures. Although IrAl exhibits brittle fracture before or immediately after yielding below 1073K, steady-state deformation takes place at temperatures higher than 1273K. Ductility of Ir1-xNixAl is improved with increasing x. On the contrary, strength decreases with increasing x. IrAl exhibits the 0.2% flow stress of 1200MPa at 1073K and 350MPa at 1473K, about an order of magnitude higher than NiAl. Secondary creep of IrAl and Ir0.2Ni0.8Al(i.e., modified NiAl) exhibits class II and class I behavior respectively. Creep strength of binary IrAl and modified NiAl with Ir is about a magnitude of 4 higher than that of single-phase and multi-phase NiAl at a given applied stress.
