2 CIVE 2700 – Civil Engineering materials, Winter 2007, 2.3 Binary Eutectic systems • A binary eutectic system has three single phase regions alpha, beta and liquid. – Alpha ( ! ): solid solution reach in copper, silver is the solute component and FCC structure. – Beta ( " ): solid solution reach in silver, copper is the solute and FCC structure. • Solubility of alpha and beta is limited: at any temperature below the line BEG only a limited concentration of silver will dissolve in copper for the alpha phase and for copper in silver for the beta phase. CIVE 2700 – Civil Engineering materials, Winter 2007, 2.4 Binary Eutectic systems • Eutectic means easily melted. • The eutectic reaction is similar to the
