ragged curves on pseudosection

Post by js »

Hi everyone,

I'm calculating pseudosection using td-tcds62-6axmn-03.txt dataset. Unfortunately, calculated pseudosection looks very strange (see below). Does anyone know what is the problem?

Hello, 

Local minima related to the LiQ model? Plus labels :) 

It is a common proble for me with amphibole / cpx at HP/LT. I would try without the melt model.

Hi Alex,

thanks for your advice. I'll try to do this. However, this problem doesn’t exist using different dataset.

Hi Jacek, How did you define the number of oxygen in your bulk? I you are using O(?), I suggest you to add a little extra oxygen to avoid minimization issues with the ferric end-members. I would try to calculate the diagram between 550-600 °C and 5000-7500 bar using the following bulk:
1    SI(66.84)AL(16.44)FE(3.14)MG(3.24)CA(0.55)NA(6.56)K(2.77)TI(0.43)MN(0.05)O(?)O(0.001)    *
Another thing you could do is to run manually a few minimizations with Theriak in this P-T range and try to figure out what the problem actually is. Pierre

Hi Pierre,thanks for your replay. I'm using the following bulk:

1   SI(66.8367)AL(16.4382)FE(3.1427)MG(3.2363)MN(0.0488)CA(0.5455)NA(6.5557)K(2.7697)TI(0.4264)H(100)O(?)  * 

So, if I understand you I could modify this bulk to:

1   SI(66.8367)AL(16.4382)FE(3.1427)MG(3.2363)MN(0.0488)CA(0.5455)NA(6.5557)K(2.7697)TI(0.4264)H(100)O(?)O(0.001)  * 

Am I right?

Hi Jacek,

Doug Tinkham discusses the issue with Ferric iron on his site (http://dtinkham.net/peq.html) under the section Ferric Iron Problems.

And yes, I believe that Pierre is correct in added a minor amount of  O to your bulk.

Hi everyone,

I have a similar problem to the Jacek, however even adding a little extra oxygen the results are still odd.

To the calculation, I am using the tcdb55c2d.txt dataset.
Does anyone know what is the problem?
