A2 → B2 → L2₁ Ordering Transitions in Au-Cu-Al Alloys
The critical transition temperatures of A2 → B2 ordering and B2 → L21 ordering in Au-Cu-Al alloys were determined by electrical resistivity measurement and internal friction analysis. The Bragg-Williams-Gorski (BWG) approximation has been widely used for years as a simple mean field method to characterize order-disorder phenomena in alloys. In this article a modified BWG model was employed to analyze the chemical ordering sequence in Au-Cu-Al alloys. Based on the measured critical transition temperatures of A2 → B2 ordering, the critical temperatures of B2 → L21 ordering were calculated. The theoretical predictions were in agreement with the measured temperatures.
