OVERVIEW

 

CALCULATION AND OPTIMIZATION OF PHASE DIAGRAMS

Calculation of phase diagrams for lead-free solder alloys based on Bi-In-Sn-Zn

A thermodynamic database was developed and phase diagrams were calculated for Bi-In-Sn-Zn alloys according to the CALPHAD (CALculation of PHAse Diagrams) method. Thermodynamic parameters for all phases have been optimized using experimental data from the literature. The resulting database can be a powerful tool in the development of lead-free Bi-In-Sn-Zn soldering alloys. It enables the calculation of solidus and liquidus temperatures, phase compositions and fractions and thermodynamic properties. Furthermore, related properties, such as surface tension and viscosity, were predicted from the thermodynamic descriptions.
