Abstract

The equilibrated grain boundary groove shapes of solid Zn in equilibrium with Zn-Al-Sb liquid were observed from a quenched sample using a radial heat flow apparatus. The Gibbs-Thomson coefficient, solid-liquid interfacial energy, and grain boundary energy of the solid Zn were determined from the observed grain boundary groove shapes. The thermal conductivity of the eutectic solid phase for Zn-0.4 at. pct Al-0.4 at. pct Sb alloy and the thermal conductivity ratio of the liquid phase to the solid phase for Zn-0.4 at. pct Al-0.4 at. pct Sb alloy at eutectic temperature were also measured with a radial heat flow apparatus and a Bridgman-type growth apparatus, respectively.
