The ternary Ti-Mo-N system is an important material that finds applications as a surface coating, hardener, and wear and corrosion protective layer. Knowledge of the phase equilibria, phase transformations, and phase stabilities of this alloy is important for realizing its potential applications. In this paper, formation energies of three intermetallic compounds, Mo2N-beta, Mo2N-gamma, and MoN-delta, were determined from ab-initio calculations. Next, the Calphad approach was applied to thermodynamically model the Mo-Ti, Mo-N, and Mo-Ti-N systems. The obtained Gibbs energies were used to calculate the phase diagram and thermodynamic properties of the Ti-Mo-N system. The present model is in good agreement with experimental data reported in the literature. The results of this work can be used as a foundation for future investigations of the Ti-Mo-N system, as well as a basis for practical industrial applications.
