GTT-Technologies With (G is an extensive property!) one obtains J.W. Gibbs defined the chemical potential of a component as: Thermodynamic properties from the Gibbs-energy
GTT-Technologies Transformation to mole fractions : = partial operator Thermodynamic properties from the Gibbs-energy
GTT-Technologies Gibbs energy function for a pure substance G(T) (i.e. neglecting pressure terms) is calculated from the enthalpy H(T) and the entropy S(T) using the well-known Gibbs-Helmholtz relation: In this H(T) is and S(T) is Thus for a given T-dependence of the c p -polynomial (for example after Meyer and Kelley) one obtains for G(T):
GTT-Technologies Gibbs energy function for a solution reference term ideal termexcess termAs shown above G m (T,x) for a solution consists of three contributions: the reference term, the ideal term and the excess term. For a simple substitutional solution (only one lattice site with random occupation) one obtains using the well-known Redlich-Kister-Muggianu polynomial for the excess terms:
GTT-Technologies Equilibrium condition: or Reaction : n A A + n B B +... = n S S + n T T +... Generally : dT = 0dp = 0 For constant T and p, i.e. dT = 0 and dp = 0, and no other work terms: Equilibrium considerations a) Stoichiometric reactions
GTT-Technologies changes dn i change in extend of reaction d For a stoichiometric reaction the changes dn i are given by the stoichiometric coefficients n i and the change in extend of reaction d . Thus the problem becomes one-dimensional. One obtains: [see the following graph for an example of G = G(x) ] Equilibrium considerations a) Stoichiometric reactions

GTT-Technologies Separation of variables results in : Thus the equilibrium condition for a stoichiometric reaction is: Introduction of standard potentials i ° and activities a i yields: One obtains: Equilibrium considerations a) Stoichiometric reactions
GTT-Technologies Law of Mass Action It follows the Law of Mass Action: where the product or is the well-known Equilibrium Constant. Equilibrium considerations a) Stoichiometric reactions The REACTION module permits a multitude of Law of Mass Action. calculations which are based on the Law of Mass Action.

GTT-Technologies Modelling of Gibbs energy of (solution) phases Pure Substance(stoichiometric) Solution phase Equilibrium considerations b) Multi-component multi-phase approach Choose appropriate reference state and ideal term, then check for deviations from ideality. See Page 11 for the simple substitutional case.
GTT-Technologies Use the EQUILIB module to execute a multitude of calculations based on the complex equilibrium approach outlined above, e.g. for combustion of carbon or gases, aqueous solutions, metal inclusions, gas-metal-slag cases, and many others. constraints in such calculations NOTE: The use of constraints in such calculations (such as fixed heat balances, or the occurrence of a predefined phase) makes this module even more versatile. Equilibrium considerations Multi-component multi-phase approach
GTT-Technologies Phase diagrams as projections of Gibbs energy plots Hillert has pointed out, that what is called a phase diagram is derivable from a projection of a so-called property diagram. The Gibbs energy as the property is plotted along the z-axis as a function of two other variables x and y. From the minimum condition for the equilibrium the phase diagram can be derived as a projection onto the x-y-plane. (See the following graphs for illustrations of this principle.)

GTT-Technologies Ternary system: projection from G-x 1 -x 2 diagram, T = const and p = const Phase diagrams as projections of Gibbs energy plots
GTT-Technologies Use the PHASE DIAGRAM module to generate a multitude of phase diagrams for unary, binary, ternary or even higher order systems. NOTE:The PHASE DIAGRAM module permits the choice of T, P, m (as RT ln a), a (as ln a), mol (x) or weight (w) fraction as axis variables. Multi-component phase diagrams require the use of an appropriate number of constants, e.g. in a ternary isopleth diagram T vs x one molar ratio has to be kept constant.

Example: Choice of Variables which always give a True Phase Diagram [ 1, 2, …, n ; Q n+1, Q n+2, …, Q N+1 ] are then the (N+1) variables of which 2 are chosen as axes and the remainder are held constant.

GTT-Technologies This is NOT a true phase diagram. Reason: n C must NOT be used in formula for mole fraction when a C is an axis variable.
