The correlation between solid solubility and its temperature dependence for solutes in aluminium

  • H. JonesEmail author

In a classic paper, Fink and Freche [1] showed linear correlations between logarithms of eutectic concentration relative to solid solubility and reciprocal of temperature T and between logarithm of solid solubility x versus reciprocal of temperature T, all for a limited number of solutes (including, Mg, Cu, Si, Mn, Cr and Ni) in aluminium.

The present purpose is to re-test this latter correlation for the larger number of solutes in aluminium for which assessed data is now available. Table  1 lists the sources and range of this data [ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20] and Fig.  1a plots slope S of log x against 1/ T versus log of solubility at T = 800 K (the temperature of reference chosen by Fink and Freche) while Fig.  1b plots the same slope versus the maximum solubility (at the eutectic or peritectic temperature). The open points and full line in Fig.  1 show the original data of Fink and Freche, while the filled points show the data from Table  1. The...
