Metallography can be used in many ways to aid in phase diagram determination. The most important problem with metallographic methods is that they usually rely on rapid quenching to preserve (or indicate) elevated-temperature microstructures for room-temperature observation. Hot-stage metallography, however, is an alternative. The application of metallographic techniques is discussed in the section on reading phase diagrams. Thermodynamic Modeling. Because a phase diagram is a representation of the thermodynamic relationships between competing phases, it is theoretically possible to determine a diagram by considering the behavior of relevant Gibbs energy functions for each phase present in the system and physical models for the reactions in the system.
