Phase diagrams of alloy systems provide essential guidance for designers, metallurgists and engineers involved in the manufacture of metal products. This paper considers the use of computer-based methods of assessment of phase diagrams in two-component systems. Both thermodynamic and phase equilibrium data are used in the analysis to provide a final data set which is as consistent as possible with all the available experimental information. The treatment of the copper-platinum and copper-rhodium systems is described. While this optimisation method is often able to resolve problems within the binary system, the major advantage lies in allowing the estimation of properties in ternary and higher order systems.
