Abstract:Phase relations in the Fe-Ti-Zr ternary system at 1 173 K were investigated by means of diffusion-triple approach together with electron probe microanalysis(EPMA) technique. A series of tie lines and tie-triangles were determined and the isothermal section at 1 173 K was established, which consists of four three-phase fields: β(Ti, Zr)+FeZr2+FeTi, FeZr2+FeTi+Fe2Zr, FeTi +Fe2Zr +Fe2Ti and Fe2Zr +Fe2Ti +Fe. The results show that the largest solubility of Ti in Fe2Zr is about 11.3%(mole fraction) and the solid solubility of Ti in FeZr2 is about 26.9%, the solid solubility of Zr in Fe2Ti is about 8.1% and the solid solubility of Zr in FeTi is 7.2%. The binary compound FeZr2 is nearly a linear compound. No ternary compound is found.
