Finding thermodynamic properties for a Zn-Mg Alloy

  1. May 20, 2017 #1
    Hi!

    I am using a Zn-Mg alloy (52% and 48% respectively) as a phase change material in a thermal energy storage system, but I have been unable to track down important properties, such as specific heats and thermal conductivity.

    Is there any way to approximate these relatively accurately given the composition and temperature? Better yet, are there any sources out there with measured properties that I haven't seen?

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.
