Abstract : The present work was undertaken in an attempt to provide further diffusion data on b.c.c. metals, and to try to understand the factors which contribute to differences in behavior between the various elements. For part of this work, the iron-chromium system was chosen since it is of considerable technological importance and data on 12% Cr and 17% Cr alloys appeared well. The diffusion of (Fe-55) in chromium was studied as an example of a more or less normal tracer element in a possibly abnormal host lattice. No data were available for vanadium, the neighbor of chromium in the periodic table, because of lack or a suitable isotope so (Cr-55) was used as a tracer in a few preliminary experiments. (Author)
