Thermodynamics of Solidification

  • Doru Michael Stefanescu


Thermodynamics is a useful tool for the analysis of solidification. It is used to evaluate alloy phase constitution, the solidification path, basic alloy properties such as partition coefficients, slopes of liquidus and solidus phase boundaries.
