Abstract

Surface tensions of Fe-4%C-S alloys were measured at 1623 and 1823 K using the sessile drop technique. Thermodynamic models based on Butler's equation for surface tension of liquid alloys have been compared with experimental results. Calculated values are found to be in good agreement with those of the experimental data of the system. At the same sulphur activity, the effect of carbon on the surface tension of Fe-C-S alloys was found to extrude only when the sulphur content was less than 0.005%.
