The purpose of this project was assist in the modeling, casting, and testing of aluminum based high entropy alloys. The goal was to create a castable alloy having more tensile strength than traditional aluminum alloys, while retaining properties such as being light weight and cost effective. This was done by modeling and casting alloys with FCC structures initially composed of aluminum, zinc, and magnesium, and later composed of aluminum, zinc, magnesium, copper, and silicon. This was done by conducting tensile test and castability experiments of the composed alloys to compare to other present alloys.
