Diffusion of Refractory Elements in Ternary Iron Alloys
Interdiffusion coefficients of the refractory elements in Fe-W-Re and Fe-Cr-X (X=Mo, W) ternary alloys have been measured on the basis of the modified Boltzmann-Matano method for ternary system. Both the cross interdiffusion coefficients, Fe ReW ~D and Fe WRe ~D were negative in Fe-W-Re ternary alloys. This result indicates that attractive interaction exists between W and Re atoms in iron alloys . This is consistent with our previous experimental results that Re suppresses W diffusion in Fe-15Cr alloy . In addition, the value of cross interdiffusion coefficient Fe CrW ~D was positive in Fe-Cr-W diffusion system, whereas Fe MoCr ~D was negative in Fe-Cr-Mo diffusion system.
