ABSTRACT
The specific heat of an undercooled liquid TiAl alloy was measured by an electromagnetic levitation drop calorimeter and the related thermodynamic properties, difference in Gibbs free energy and change in entropy are calculated based on the experimental results and some well known models. Under the containerless processing condition, the liquid alloy was undercooled by up to 219 K (0.122T[sub L]). The change in enthalpy shows a linear relationship with the temperature and a nearly constant specific heat was determined even though this alloy was undercooled far below its liquidus temperature. The calculated results of the thermodynamic properties reveal that even though semiquantitative models fit with the experimental curve of the difference in Gibbs free energy well, they lead to different degrees of deviation in the entropy difference calculation. © 2002 American Institute of Physics.
