Chapter 7: Monotectic Alloy Systems
This chapter provides a brief overview of monotectic alloy systems and reactions. It begins by presenting a monotectic phase diagram and identifying important points, lines, and regions. It then describes the monotectic reactions that occur in copper-lead systems and the associated solidification structures. It also discusses the morphology of the microstructure produced during directional solidification and the classification criteria of low- and high-dome alloys.
