The partial and integral enthalpies of mixing in liquid Al-Si and Al-Cu alloys were determined by high-temperature isoperibolic calorimetry at 1750±5 and 1590±5, respectively. The thermodynamic properties of Al-Si melts were also studied by electromotive force method in temperature range 950-1270 K. The partial and integral excess Gibbs free energies of mixing in liquid Al-Si and Al-Cu alloys were also calculated from literature data on thermodynamic activity of aluminium. The comparison of our experimental results with literature data has been performed.
