L12 modified titanium trialuminides have been prepared by replacing 9at.% of the aluminum in Al3Ti with chromium and/or iron. The materials were recrystallized into single phase polycrystals after isothermal forging resulting in an average grain diameter of about 40µm. Lattice parameter of the material containing 9 at.% chromium or 9 at.% iron, are 0.3959nm and 0.3939nm, respectively. The lattice parameters varied linearly with composition between these values for additions of both chromium and iron. Uniaxial compression tests were performed at temperatures ranging from 293K to 1300K. The yield strength is not sensitive to chemical composition within the range of compositions tested. Flow stress serrations of a few % were observed at temperatures around 600K, where intermittent drops in flow stress started immediately after yielding and continued to the end. These serrations were observed up to about 800K. At 900K and above the materials became fully deformable. Quasi steady state flow and strain softening were observed at 1200K and 1300K, respectively, due to dynamic recrystallization.
