On the basis of the critically reviewed experimental diffusivities available in the literature, the atomic mobilities of Cu, Mn and Ni in fcc Cu–Mn–Ni alloys were assessed as a function of temperature and composition by means of DICTRA (DIffusion Controlled TRAnsformation) software. Comprehensive comparisons between the calculated results and the experimental data show that a good agreement is obtained for various diffusivities in binary and ternary systems, including impurity diffusion coefficients, tracer diffusion coefficients and interdiffusion coefficients. The atomic mobilities obtained can also be used to describe various diffusion phenomena for a series of binary and ternary diffusion couples, such as concentration profiles, the Kirkendall shift, the interdiffusion flux and diffusion paths.
