Singular points on the pT constitution diagram of heterogeneous systems
Abstract
The analysis deals with points on the pT diagram of heterogeneous systems at which the number of thermodynamic degrees of freedom is equal to unity. The conditions are identified which, if satisfied for fixed pressure and temperature values, do not tolerate the existence of an equilibrium state of the system. The results are illustrated by calculating the composition of the Al + C + O system.
