Peritectic and Monotectic Solidification

  • Doru Michael Stefanescu


Peritectic solidification is very common in the solidification of metallic alloys. Typical examples of systems with peritectic solidification include Fe-C, Fe-Ni, Cu-Sn and Cu-Zn alloys. A schematic phase diagram with peritectic solidification is presented in Figure 10.1. The different reactions corresponding to various compositions are also shown.
