In the temperature range 0.5–300 K the mechanical properties and fracture characteristics of the high-entropy alloy Al0.5CoCrCuFeNi were studied for different structural states (as cast and after two heat treatments). The temperature dependences of Young’s modulus for different structural states were measured by mechanical resonance spectroscopy. It was found that heat treatment of the samples leads to an increase (~ 25%) of the Young’s modulus, the conditional yield stress τ0.2, and the deforming stress. The form of de-formation curves is analyzed. Thermoactivation analy-sis of experimental data made it possible to obtain em-pirical estimates of the parameters of the interaction of dislocations with local barriers.
