Title of Research
Thermodynamicmodelling of transition metal containing silico-nitride ceramics coupled with ab initio calculations
This study involves development of multi-component thermodynamic database for the quaternary N-Si-Ti-Zr system. Extrapolation to higher order systems requires accurate thermodynamic descriptions for the constituent binary and ternary sub-systems. Re-assessment/assessment of the binary and ternary sub-systems using Thermo-calc software is the focal point of this study. The thermochemical data required for modelling different phases are evaluated using ab-initio calculations.
