Modeling Techniques for the Prediction of Phase Diagrams

Chattopadhyay, S (1990) Modeling Techniques for the Prediction of Phase Diagrams. In: Workshop on Modelling of Metallurgical Processes, 23/01/1990, Jamshedpur.



Most metallurgical reactions at high temperatures involve two or more phases. Therefore, the phase diagram, which describe the phase relations based on their therm-odynamic properties are highly important. These diagrams display graphically a large amount of data on the beha-viour of a system in a limited space. The variables that are plotted in most diagrams are temperature and compo-sition. Also the diagrams showing the relations of temp-erature and pressure and several compositions at a given temperature for ternary systems are drawn in many instances. These diagrams are also known as equilibrium diagrams since the phase reactions are considered to be in thermodynamic equilibrium . However, non equilibrium diagrams, such as metastable phase diagrams and coherent phase diagrams are also available for some systems.
