Component : A chemical constituent (element or compound) of an alloy, can be used to specify the alloys composition. Solubility : The amount of one material (or element) that can completely dissolve in a second material (element) without creating a second phase. Solubility limit : The maximum concentration of solute (minor concentration) material/element that may dissolve in the solvent (major concentration) material/element to form a solid solution. Isomorphous alloy : Alloys having the same crystal structure or complete solid solubility for all compositions. MECH 210 081020 Page 6 of 33 Phase diagram : A graphical representation of the relationships between composition, environmental constraints (primarily temperature and sometimes pressure), and regions of phase stability under conditions of equilibrium. Liquid phase is labeled as L or Liquid while solid phases are labeled in Greek alphabets . Binary phase diagram : A phase diagram in which there are only two components.
