The phase equilibria and thermodynamic properties of the ternary Ni-Al-Ta system on Ni-rich side were analyzed. Thermodynamic descriptions of the liquid, γ-fcc, γ'-L12, and π-Ni6AlTa phases were obtained using the CALPHAD (CALculation of PHase Diagrams) technique. The thermodynamics of γ-fcc and γ'-L12 phases were modeled with a single Gibbs energy function taking into account the crystallographic relation between the two phases. The ternary interaction parameters of the liquid and fcc phases were also determined. The calculated phase diagrams of the ternary Ni-Al-Ta system show a good agreement with experimental data.
