The slags used in metallurgical processes are usually very complex in nature, being ternary, quaternary, and even more complex. Complete investigation of the thermodynamic properties of even a portion of such a complex system would involve a very large amount of work even if all the experimental difficulties were solved. Secondly, it is difficult to interpret measurements made on complex slags without first knowing and understanding how simple binary and ternary melts behave. For these reasons, investigators decided to build up thermodynamic data on the simpler binary and ternary melts in the hope that an examination of these data might lead to "models" by which the knowledge of the simpler systems could be used to predict the thermodynamic properties of the more complex slags used in industrial processes.
