In order to model microporosity during soldification, the surface tension of the interdendritic liquid should be known. The surface tension is a function of both temperature and composition. This communication gives an example of treating surface tension data for a binary alloy based upon a thermodynamic model, then extrapolating the results to the lower temperatures within the solidification range of the alloy.
