In both single and polycrystalline Ni3Al, no strain rate dependence of 0.2% flow stress is observed in a temperature range where anomalous positive temperature dependence of strength is exhibited. A distinct strain rate dependence is observed, however, in single crystals when the test temperature is raised beyond the peak in flow stress. It is shown that (111) type slip involving diffusional process is responsible for the strain rate sensitivity at near  orientation, while (001) type slip which is governed by the Peierls mechanism at orientations away from . In polycrystalline compound with a fine grain size an apparent loss of the positive temperature dependence of strength is observed at a slower strain rate due to grain boundary sliding.
