Applications of Phase Diagrams in Metallurgy and Ceramics: Proceedings of a Workshop Held at the National Bureau of Standards, Gaithersburg, Maryland, January 10-12, 1977. Volumes 1 [and] 2.
Carter, G. C., Ed.
This document is a special National Bureau of Standards publication on a Workshop on Applications of Phase Diagrams in Metallurgy and Ceramics. The purposes of the Workshop were: (1) to assess the current national and international status of phase diagram determinations and evaluations for alloys, ceramics and semiconductors; (2) to determine the needs and priorities, especially technological, for phase diagram determinations and evaluations; and (3) to estimate the resources being used and potentially available for phase diagram evaluation. These proceedings reflect the detailed contents of the Workshop for both the tutorial and review sessions as well as four poster sessions and four panel sessions covering the following subjects: (1) critical phase diagram availability; (2) user needs of phase diagrams; (3) experimental methods of determination; (4) theoretical methods of calculation and prediction; (5) methods of phase diagram representations of calculation and prediction; (6) methods of phase diagram representations (especially multicomponent); and (7) distribution to the user. Three of the panels addressed the subject of phase diagram needs in industrial applications. (Author/GA)
