Liquid-Solid Interface Free Energies for Metals from Free-volume Method and Interface Structural Model
The thermodynamic approximate-expression for liquid–solid interface free energy which has its origin in the loss of configurational entropy due to the adjustment of the liquid to a boundary was derived. Triangular-square-pentagonal lattices were proposed for a structural model of the liquid–solid interface. Calculated values from the thermodynamic approximate-expression and the interface structural model showed a fair agreement with previous experimental data.
