To assist the quantitative design of ultra-high strength (UHS) quantum steels containing Pd, a set of self-consistent thermodynamic model parameters is presented to describe the phase equilibria of the Cr-Pd and Mo-Pd systems. These thermodynamic parameters are of importance to control the kinetics of solid-solid phase transformations, such as martensitic transformation, and precipitation of M2C carbide and austenite, relevant to the design of UHS steels in the Fe-C-Co-Cr-Mo-Ni-Pd system. The present thermodynamic modeling complements our previous report on the thermodynamic modeling of the Co-Pd, Fe-Pd, and Ni-Pd systems to facilitate quantitative design of UHS quantum steels.
