Thermodynamic modeling of the Ca-Sr and Sr-Zn binary systems and the prediction of the Ca-Sr-Zn ternary system were done using the CALPHAD technique and a computerized optimization procedure. The thermodynamic descriptions of pure Ca, Sr, and Zn elements were taken from the literature. Based on the experimental phase diagram and thermodynamic information, a set of parameters describing the Gibbs energies of the different phases in this ternary system was obtained. The calculated results were compared with the experimental data in the Ca-Sr and Sr-Zn binary systems, and the phase equilibria of the Ca-Sr-Zn ternary system was predicted.
