Abstract

A general equation is derived for melting point depression (MPD) of pure metals, consisting of three terms: MPD due to high gas pressure, MPD due to high strain energy, and MPD due to small size of the metal. Particular equations are derived for different configurations of the solid metal, including grains embedded within a matrix. The equations obtained in this paper can be used to design nano-joining structures with improved MPD.
