A thermodynamic description of the Fe-Cr-Si system with emphasis on the equilibria of the sigma (Σ) phase

  • M. Lindholm
Section I: Basic and Applied Research


The Fe-Cr-Si system has been of interest for a long time because of the beneficiai effect of silicon on oxidation resistance, and also because of the problems it causes by enhancing brittle Σ- phase. The system has been evaluated using recent data, and the description is satisfactory.
