Calculation of phase diagrams for commercial materials

  • L. Kaufman
Section II: Basic and Applied Research


The contributions of Oswald Kubaschewski and coworkers in the field of applied chemical thermodynamics serve as a guide for future workers who are interested in practical applications of the vast thermochemical literature that Kubaschewski helped to assemble and refine. Three recent examples of the calculation of multicomponent phase diagrams for commercial alloy steels, aluminum alloys, and ceramic composites illustrate how modern computer-based methods can be used to facilitate such applications.
