Abstract: Casting simulation requires high quality information about the thermophysical properties of the alloy, but the number of alloys for which such information is available is limited. In this paper, a solution of Butler's formulation for surface tension is presented for Al-Cu-Si ternary alloys and consequently, permitting the Gibbs-Thomson coefficient to be determined. The importance of the Gibbs-Thomson coefficient is related to the reliability of predictions furnished by predictive microstructure growth models and of numerical computations of solidification thermal variables, which will be strongly dependent on the values of the thermophysical properties adopted in the calculations. The Gibbs-Thomson coefficient for ternary alloys is seldom reported in the literature. A numerical model based on Powell hybrid algorithm and on a finite difference Jacobian approximation was coupled with a ThermoCalc TCAPI interface to assess the excess Gibbs energy of the liquid phase, permitting the surface tension and Gibbs-Thomson coefficient for Al-Cu-Si hypoeutectic alloys to be calculated. The computed results are presented as a function of the alloy composition.
