Workpackage five of the High Temperature Fixed-Point research programme will determine the thermodynamic temperature for the equilibrium melting transition of the pure eutectic systems of Re-C, Pt-C and Co-C and, in addition, the freezing point of Cu. Measurements of four different cells of each type will be made by nine participating laboratories. This paper describes how the melt sensitivity to the rate of the previous freeze, furnace effects and cell impurities will be accounted for and how the results will be combined allowing for all existing correlations.
