Thermochemical properties and glass forming tendency modeling for the ternary Ge–Mn–Gd melts
Keywords:germanium, manganese, gadolinium, enthalpy of mixing, glass forming tendency
Information on the thermochemical properties may be useful for predicting of the concentration regions of easy glass formation in multicomponent alloys. In present investigation the integral enthalpies of mixing for the Ge–Mn–Gd melts were determined for the entire concentration interval at 1830 K using the Redlich-Kister-Muggianu method. GFT values for binary and ternary alloys of this system were calculated. Size mismatch entropy was estimated within the frameworks of hard spheres model. On the basis of performed calculations the concentration regions in which the melts of the Ge–Mn–Gd system can demonstrate considerable tendency to easy glass formation were suggested.
