Abstract content <br> &nbsp; (Max 300 words)

With the use of density functional theory, First principles planewave pseudopotential methods has been used to investigate the elastic properties of Pt-Cr and Ru-Cr binary alloys. The elastic constants, bulk modulus, shear modulus and Young’s modulus were calculated for the different phases of the composition of A3B and AB3 (where A = Pt or Ru and B = Cr). The results provide useful information on elastic properties of PtCr binary alloys with promising application as coatings to cover the turbine engines which are exposed to aggressive environments.
