Abstract

Equations are developed for calculating the density of aluminosilicate liquids as a function of composition and temperature. The mean molar volume at reference temperature Tr, is given by , where the summation is taken over all oxide components except A12O3, X stands for mole fraction, terms are constants derived independently from an analysis of volume-composition relations in alumina-free silicate liquids, and is the composition-dependent apparent partial molar volume of Al2O3. The thermal expansion coefficient of aluminosilicate liquids is given by , where terms are constants independent of temperature and composition, and is a composition-dependent term representing the effect of Al2O3 on the thermal expansion. Parameters necessary to calculate the volume of silicate liquids at any temperature T according to V(T) = Vrexp[α(T-Tr)], where Tr = 1400°C have been evaluated by least-square analysis of selected density measurements in aluminosilicate melts. Mean molar volumes of aluminosilicate liquids calculated according to the model equation conform to experimentally measured volumes with a root mean square difference of 0.28 and an average absolute difference of 0.90% for 248 experimental observations. The compositional dependence of is discussed in terms of several possible interpretations of the structural role of Al3+ in aluminosilicate melts.
