liquidus In a temperature—composition diagram, the liquidus is the locus of points marking the boundary above which the phases are all liquid. In a binary system it is represented by a line, in a ternary system by a curved surface, and in a quaternary system by a volume. Between the liquidus and the solidus, both liquid and solid phases are present. See PHASE DIAGRAM.
