Basic And Applied Research


Thermodynamic calculations of Fe-Zr and Fe-Zr-C systems have been performed using the Thermo-Calc software based on an extensive amount of experimental data, including the thermodynamic measurements and available phase diagram information. The calculated thermodynamic properties and phase diagram in the Fe-Zr system account for the experimental data reasonably, while the calculated solubility of ZrC in γFe in the Fe-Zr-C system is a little smaller than the only experimental data by Narrita; to clear up this discrepancy, further investigations on the Fe-Zr-C as well as the Zr-C systems are needed.
