When used in through-hole applications, a binary alloy (such as cobalt-enhanced) is much easier to maintain operating specifications when compared to a tertiary alloy (such as SAC 305); thus, less solder pot maintenance becomes necessary.
The specimens were cast in special ceramic moulds with the starting seed crystals, made of the Ni-W binary alloy, placed in the mould.
Other topics include a heat transfer coefficient study for air quenching, CFD simulation of mixing in a stirred reactor, atom size effects on binary alloy phase diagrams, and the torsional ductility of heavily cold drawn steel wires.
The easiest way to proceed is to assume the distribution coefficients for the binary alloy systems can be used in ternary alloy systems.
