Chapter 4: Isomorphous Alloy Systems
This chapter discusses the unique characteristics of isomorphous alloy systems. It begins with a review of the naming conventions for multi-component systems and the construction of a three-dimensional phase diagram for a two-component alloy system. It explains how phase diagrams can be constructed from time-temperature cooling curves and how they can be used to predict the phases present, their chemical compositions, and relative amounts. It also shows how phase diagrams can be modified to account for nonequilibrium cooling conditions.
