Thermodynamics of multicomponent, elastic, crystalline solids Academic Article uri icon


  • The thermodynamic behavior of multicomponent, elastic, crystalline solids is developed, including Euler's equation, the Gibbs equation, the Gibbs-Duhem equation, the conditions to be expected at equilibrium including a new description of stress-deformation behavior, and an extension of the Gibbs phase rule. The predictions of the phase rule are compared with two types of experimental observations including the ten triple points of water. 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
