Abstract : A series of experimental investigations were made which have confirmed the theory of Spinodal Decomposition in alloys. Theoretical studies were also completed which extended the scope of the original theory to cover: (1) Decomposition during continuous cooling. (2) The later stages of the decomposition and (3) Certain types of ordering reactions.
