A review of the phase diagram showed a promising eutectic composition at approximately 10 wt% cerium that suggested the alloy could be cast.
When the eutectic composition is reached, carbon precipitates as graphite and the eutectic solidification starts.
of Al, which is an alloy of nearly eutectic composition, its strength is highest.
If the eutectic composition is reached during further decreasing of the temperature, at the horizontal line, 1329[degrees]C, both components of the eutectic system--metal and carbon--start to freeze simultaneously but separately.
3] and production of fine-grain structures of pre-eutectic or eutectic composition, representing a-Ti matrix with particles [Ti.
Following from the In-Sn binary diagram, the solder matrix is of eutectic composition.
Surface cracks on lead-free solder joints are the result of the rate of cooling of the solder from the wave solder process and are influenced by the difference of the alloy from its eutectic composition.
The eutectic composition is indicated by the black square in Figure 1.
