The methods of X-ray diffraction have been employed to study the crystal structure of six cast high-temperature alloys - 61, X-40, X-50, 422-19, 6059, and Vitallium - that have been or are being considered for use in gas-turbine applications. The predominant phase present in each of the alloys was a solid solution of the face-centered cubic type made up of the principal constituent elements. The lattice parameters of these alloys were found to lie between the values 3.5525 and 3.5662.
