Thermodynamic optimisation of phase diagrams is a procedure that requires considerable experience and skill. The purpose of this article is to furnish certain guidelines that might facilitate the work and improve the quality of the thermodynamic optimisation of phase diagrams using the Calphad method. Some particulars regarding experimental data, Gibbs energy models, constraints on model parameters, and performing the optimisation are discussed. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
