Segregation of solute atoms and vacancies to migrating D03-type antiphase boundaries (APBs) in Fe3Al of the stoichirometric and an Al-rich compositions has been investigated in detail by a phase-field method developed in the previous study [Koizumi et al. Acta Mater 2009;57:3039] focusing on the quantitative relationship among the segregation, APB energy, driving-force, drag-force and APB mobility. It has been revealed that the drag-force by solute segregation depends considerably on the alloy composition and is responsible for the significant composition dependence of the migration kinetics of D03-APB whereas the composition dependences of driving-force and mobility are negligibly small.
