One of the unsettled issues of the mechanical properties of L1 2-Ni3Al compound is the effect of off-stoichiometry on the 0.2% flow stress at low temperature region. 0.2% flow stress at 77 K increases as deviating from the stoichiometric composition to both Ni-rich and Al-rich sides, but in Al-rich side the increasing rate is higher. According to the XRD results for the binary Ni3Al alloys, however, the composition dependence of the lattice constant is the same in both sides of the stoichiometric composition, which implies that the magnitude of lattice strain induced at off-stoichiometric composition is symmetrical. And it is not rational to associate the strengthening mechanism to a sole effect of isotropic strain due to an atomic size difference. In this study, attempts are made to explain the additional strengthening in Al-rich alloys in terms of the tetragonal distortion hardening mechanism, which arises from anisotropic atomic configuration around an anti-site Al atom.
