|Title||Paper, 'On certain ternary alloys. Part V. Determination of various critical curves, and their tie-lines and limiting points' by Charles Romley Alder Wright|
|Description||Wright writes: 'The triangular method of graphical representation suggested by Sir G G Stokes, and described in Part IV [see PP/17/12] (‘Roy. Soc. Proc.,’ vol. 49, p. 174), substantially amounts to the tracing out of a curve (“critical curve”) which shall express the saturation of the solvent C with a mixture in given variable proportions of the other two constituents, A, B; the variation being such that any given point on the curve is related to some other point (“conjugate point”) in a way given by the consideration that all mixtures of the three constituents, A, B, C, represented by points lying on the line (“tie-line”) joining these two conjugate points (“ideal” alloys, or mixtures), will separate into two different ternary mixtures corresponding with the two points respectively ; whereas any mixture of the same constituents, represented by a point lying outside the critical curve, will form a “real” alloy, or mixture, not separating spontaneously into two different fluids but existing as a stable homogeneous whole.'|
