Abstract

Molecular thermodynamics is used to develop a new model for the prediction of the thermodynamic properties of liquid metal mixtures. It combines corresponding states theory with a perturbed hard sphere model to predict successfully, without adjustable parameters, a variety of mixture properties from pure component properties for simple eutectic mixtures.
