The Thermodynamics Calculation of Mg-Zn Alloy
In the present work Miedema model has been developed, and the formation enthalpy of Mg-Zn alloys and the activity curve of Zn in Mg-Zn alloy at 1000K have been calculated according to the Miedema model. The calculation results showed that the formation enthalpy of Mg-Zn was small, and the excess entropy attributes a lot to the result. When excess enthopy was considered, the calculation results were found to be in good agreement with the experimental values.
