Basic And Applied Research


The Fe-Zn binary system is assessed thermodynamically. A two-sublattice model is adopted to describe the intermetallic compounds, which are treated as nonstoichiometric. A set of parameters consistent with most of the available experimental data on both phase diagram and activities measurements is obtained through optimization. A comparison with previous work is also presented.
