THORIUM-MOLYBDENUM PHASE DIAGRAM

Description: The phase diagram of the Th-- Mo alloy system has been determined to be of the eutectic type with a eutectoid reaction associated with the Th alpha-beta transformation. X-ray, thermal, electric resistance, and metallographic methods have established the eutectic point at 1380 plus or minus 10 deg C and 7.0 plus or minus 0.5 wt% Mo. A eutectoid reaction is proposed at 1358 plus or minus 5 deg C and less than 0.1 wt% Mo. No solubility of Th in Mo was detected at 1325 deg C. (auth)

CORROSION MECHANISM OF ZIRCONIUM AND ITS ALLOYS--DIFFUSION OF OXYGEN IN ZIRCONIUM DIOXIDE

Description: The diffusion rate of O in anion-deficient zirconia, ZrO/sub 1.994/, was determined by the interface migration of stoichiometric oxide and is represented by the equation D = 0.055 exp (--33,400 surface proces 3100/RT). A comparison was made with other processes that occur in the metal and the oxide. Excellent agreement was noted between activation energies of O diffusion in ZrO/sub 1.944/ and those for parabolic or cubic oxidation in both air and water. It appears that O diffusion in the oxide is rate-controlling during oxidation of the metal. The corrosion and oxidation behavior of Zr and some alloys are discussed in terms of the oxide defect structure and the electric conductivity behavior in the oxide. A speculative mechanism for corrosion transition to linear rates was suggested on the basis of preferential oxidation of a grain boundary metallic phase. The nature of the phase and of its formation and elimination are discussed. (auth)
