We describe a method for the computation of ternary phase equilibria from thermochemical data. The method is developed for the case where the binary phases show regular behaviour, and is used to construct the phase diagram of the system Ge-Si-Bi over the temperature range 960 to 1460° C. For this case, a simple approximation for the integral, molar, excess, free energy of the ternary system is used.
