melt·ing point

(mĕl′tĭng)
The temperature at which a solid becomes a liquid. For a given substance, the melting point of its solid form is the same as the freezing point of its liquid form. The melting point of ice is 32°F (0°C); that of iron is 2,797°F (1,535°C).

There were 2 slope changes in the graph; the first occurred in the liquidus temperature and the second occurred in the solidus temperature. Between these two limits is the mushy zone.
Initially, at t = 0, the PCM is exposed to an ambient temperature of 300 K (540[degrees]R) as a subcooled temperature that is 50 K (90[degrees]R) below solidus temperature [T.sub.s] to ensure that the PCM is at the solid phase.
(iii) Non-ideal property of tissue is used with liquidus and solidus temperature as -1[degrees]C and -8[degrees]C respectively [32].
Reflow solder profiles typical of those shown in FIGURE 1 should ideally be a linear ramp at 1 or 2[degrees]C per sec., up to 20[degrees] to 30[degrees]C above solidus temperature. The minimum time above liquidus should be 20 sec., followed by a rapid cool down to reach the solidus state.
The long-term holding of the metal in the vicinity of the solidus temperature results in the homogenising of the metal and maybe the reason for the improvement of its toughness after refining of the grain by quenching with tempering.
In many tectonic settings, the partitioning of water into magma reduces [MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] in the source rock, thereby raising the solidus temperature and limiting the amount of melt produced.
With SAC alloys having a melting temperature around 217[degrees]C being adopted as a mainstream solder for SMT assembly, and with components possibly reaching 260[degrees]C upon reflow, internal solder joints should have a solidus temperature above 260[degrees]C, preferably above 280[degrees]C.
