Single crystals of stoichiometric NiAl and NiAl+V alloys were tested in compression and tension from room temperature to 871°C to determine deformation behavior. The dislocations were predominately <100> in the plastically deformed specimens. Attempts to ductilize NiAl by the addition of vanadium are described. The lowering of the anti-phase boundary energy by vanadium addition to NiAl, believed to promote the formation of <111> dislocations, was predicted by the all electron self consistent total electron band structure calculations. The vanadium additions caused considerable solid solution strengthening in NiAl, rendering the ternary alloys more brittle than stoichiometric NiAl.
