The structural parameters and the elastic stiffness coefficients of Ni3Al and TiAl under pressures are computed by the ab initio pseudopotential method with the plane-wave basis set and the generalized gradient approximtion (GGA). The pressure dependence of the elastic constants is an important characteristic for both Ni3Al and TiAl as these materaly are frequently subjected to varying pressure during their processing. The bulk moduls is also calculated. Stress-strain relations are used to obtain the elastic constants. For zero-pressure lattice constants, binding energy are calculated. The results are in good agreement with available experimental data.
