The equilibrated grain boundary groove shapes of a solid Al solution in equilibrium with Al-Cu-Ag liquid were observed from a quenched sample using a radial heat flow apparatus. The Gibbs-Thomson coefficient, solid-liquid interfacial energy, and grain boundary energy of the solid Al solution were determined from the observed grain boundary groove shapes. The thermal conductivity of the solid phase for Al-16.42 at.% Ag-4.97 at.% Cu and Al-16.57 at.% Ag-11.87 at.% Cu alloys and the thermal conductivity ratio of the liquid phase to the solid phase for Al-16.57 at.% Ag-11.87 at.% Cu alloy at the melting temperature were also measured with a radial heat flow apparatus and a Bridgman-type growth apparatus, respectively.
