An empirical method is developed, based on the calculated theoretical elastic-strain energy, to predict the phase formation and its stability for complex concentrated alloys. The method prediction quality is compared with the traditional empirical rules based on atomic-size mismatch, enthalpy of mixing and valence electron concentration for a database of 235 different alloys. Considering the different available empirical methods used to date, the *elastic-strain energy vs. valence electron concentration* criterion shows an improved ability to distinguish between single-phase solid solutions, mixtures of solid solutions and intermetallic phases. The criterion is especially strong for alloys that precipitate the mu phase. The theoretical elastic-strain-energy parameter can be combined with other known parameters, such as those noted above, to establish new criteria which can help predicting the design of novel high-entropy alloys with on-demand combination of mechanical properties.
