Properties of solid-state materials depend on their crystal structures. In solid solution high entropy alloy (HEA), its mechanical properties such as strength and ductility depend on its phase. Therefore, the crystal structure prediction should be preceded to find new functional materials. Recently, the machine learning-based approach has been successfully applied to the prediction of structural phases. However, since about 80% of the data set is used as a training set in machine learning, it is well known that it requires vast cost for preparing a dataset of multi-element alloy as training. In this work, we develop an efficient approach to predicting the multi-element alloys' structural phases without preparing a large scale of the training dataset. We demonstrate that our method trained from binary alloy dataset can be applied to the multi-element alloys' crystal structure prediction by designing a transformation module from raw features to expandable form. Surprisingly, without involving the multi-element alloys in the training process, we obtain an accuracy, 80.56% for the phase of the multi-element alloy and 84.20% accuracy for the phase of HEA. It is comparable with the previous machine learning results. Besides, our approach saves at least three orders of magnitude computational cost for HEA by employing expandable features. We suggest that this accelerated approach can be applied to predicting various structural properties of multi-elements alloys that do not exist in the current structural database.
