The Gibbs energy descriptions of the equilibrium phases of the Co-Nb system were obtained by a computerised least-squares optimisation of the experimental thermodynamic and phase diagram data from the literature. A review of the available experimental data is presented. The modelling of phases and the optimisation procedure are described. Calculated results are compared with experimental data.
