Thermophysical properties of the liquid Pb84.1-Au15.9 eutectic alloy

Plevachuk, Y.; Sklyarchuk, V.; Yakymovych, A.; Eckert, S.; Gerbeth, G.

Lead-gold eutectic alloy is under intense consideration as target material of spallation sources. The thermohydraulic design of such a target or related coolant systems requires a reliable data basis regarding the temperature dependent physical properties of such alloys. We present measurements of the electrical and thermal conductivity, thermoelectric power, viscosity and surface tension for liquid Pb-Au alloys of eutectic composition in a wide temperature range between the melting point and about 1000 K.

Keywords: thermophysical properties; lead-gold eutectics
