Outline of lecture

This lecture describes fundamentals of binary and ternary phase diagrams for metalc materils, phase reaction and resulting microstruture formed during solidification. Main purpose is to understand the relationship between binary phase diagrams and microstructures. Besides, fundamentals of thermodynamics related to phase diagrams are provided. Students who have not studied phase diagrams in undergraduate course are welcome.

Purpose of lecture

The purpose of this lecture is a comprehensive understanding of the alloy phase diagrams in the binary and ternary systems and related thermodynamics including Gibbs free energy, the phase rule, Gibbs free energy, laws of thermodynamics and so on. Besides, microstructures are discussed in connection with phase reactions. This lecture is given in English.
