Investigation of solidification behavior of the Sn-rich ternary Sn-Bi-Zn alloys
Keywords:Snâ€“Biâ€“Zn system, solidification, SEM-EDS, DSC
Solidification properties and microstructure of six as-cast Sn-Bi-Zn alloys with 80 at.% of Sn and variable contents of Bi and Zn were experimentally investigated using the scanning electron microscopy (SEM) with energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The experimentally obtained results were compared with predicted phase equilibria according to the calculation of phase diagram (CALPHAD) method and by the Scheil solidification simulation.
