Phase equilibria in the Cu-Fe portion of the Cu-Fe-Mo and the Cu-Fe-Nb systems, in the temperature ranges 1073 to 1573 K and 1373 to 1573 K, respectively, were determined by metallography and scanning electron microscopy-energy dispersive x-ray methods. Based on the present experimental data combined with the previous assessments of the component binary systems, thermodynamic calculations of phase equilibria were carried out adopting the subregular solution model to describe the Gibbs energies of the liquid, bcc, and fcc phases. The evaluated thermodynamic parameters lead to a better fit between calculations and experimental data in both the Cu-Fe-Mo and Cu-Fe-Nb systems.
