1/12 Computational Thermodynamics and Kinetics Team 1 Group A Brittany Brandon Katharine Hickey Kim Larrabee Francisco Martinez Randi Patterson
2/12 Introduction What is Computational Thermodynamics and Kinetics? –Computational Thermodynamics is the discipline by which phase diagrams are generated through analysis of the basic thermodynamic properties of metals. – Kinetics is the branch of science that is concerned with the rates of change in processes. What is diffusion? –The movement of particles from a region of higher concentration to a region of lower concentration. Hypothesis –The experimental results will prove the existence of three new phases consisting of magnesium, calcium, and zinc.
3/12 Purpose To create a magnesium alloy with higher creep resistance with numerous applications such as cars, airplanes, and laptops.
