This paper reports the stability of Ti-5Al-5Mo-5V-3Cr and similar Mo equivalent alloys using first principles calculations. The lattice constant and modulus values are calculated using X-ray diffraction and ultrasonic techniques, respectively. All the four alloys display negative values of  formation energy per atom and the alloy Ti-5Al-5Mo-5V-3Cr is most stable among these. The lattice constant, modulus and hardness values of these alloys lie in low (Ti-5Al-5Mo-5V-3Cr, Ti-5Al-5Mo-8.6V-1.5Cr) and high (Ti-5Al-3.5Mo-7.2V-3Cr, Ti-5Al-3.5Mo-5V-3.94Cr) regimes. All the alloys display ductile behavior based on shear and bulk modulus ratios.
