Corresponding states correlation for the surface tension of melts
Setareh Sheikh, Ali Boushehri
The temperature dependence of the surface tension for metals has been examined, based on phenomenological scaling and consideration of the law of corresponding states. A set of reduced coordinates, σ* – T*, where σ* is the reduced surface tension and T* is the reduced temperature for the prediction of the surface tension of metals, is introduced. The new reduced coordinates result in a single curve for the surface tension of metals as a function of temperature.
