Constructing a Blast Furnace Diagram with FactSage – Part II

In the second blog post of this series related to the Blast Furnace Diagram, we explore some variations of the diagram constructed in the first blog post, while sticking to carbon as the only reducing agent in the system. This blog post was written in collaboration with Klaus Hack. The first diagram that we will …

Constructing a Blast Furnace Diagram with FactSage 8.2

The so-called blast-furnace diagram describes which phases are stable in the different regions of the blast furnace, depending on the conditions of temperature and of the atmosphere inside the furnace[1]. It is basically a phase diagram, where the volume fraction of CO is represented on the X-axis and the temperature is represented on the Y-axis, …

From molar Gibbs energy functions to phase diagrams

Al Cu Phase Diagram

In a series of posts, we will focus on the relation between phase diagrams, Gibbs energy functions and activities. Let us begin with the Al-Cu phase diagram at a temperature of 500 °C. In this blog post we will work exclusively with the FactSage Education Package. Let us suppose we have generated an Al-Cu phase-diagram …
