The obtained results suggest linear correlation between bulkmodulus and Re concentration and between shearmodulus and formation enthalpy. The results are used to parameterize a sublattice modelwith ideal mixing on each sublattice for the free energy and elastic constants. The model allows one to predict the equilibrium composition on each sublattice and hence elastic constants as a function of global Re concentration and temperature of theW-Re alloy.", keywords = "Sigma phase, Elastic constants, Density functional theory, Sublattice model", author = "Giovanni Bonny and Alexander Bakaev and Dmitry Terentyev and Yuri Mastrikov", note = "Score=10", year = "2016", month = sep, day = "29", doi = "10.1016/j.scriptamat.2016.09.039", language = "English", volume = "128", pages = "45", journal = "Scripta Materialia", issn = "1359-6462", publisher = "Elsevier", }
