The Effective Interdiffusion Coefficients in Experimental Investigations of Interdiffusion in Ternary Systems
The application of the effective interdiffusion coefficients for describing the interdiffusion process in ternary systems is discussed. It is shown that the relative values of effective interdiffusion coefficients, which are directly related to the diffusion path developed in a given diffusion couple, are responsible for deviation of the diffusion paths from linearity. The relationship between effective interdiffusion coefficients and partial (intrinsic) coefficients in ternary systems is analysed. It is shown that Boltzmann’s solution for diffusion equation with variable diffusion coefficient by means of relatively easy calculation procedure gives reliable results for the calculation concentration distributions in a ternary diffusion couple.
