Compositional and Stress-Sensitive Factors during the Thermopower Characterization of Single Phase Crystalline and Glassy Alloys
For the study of stress state in engineering alloys, the thermopower (S) measurement could be acceptable method after a suitable calibration (fitting the S value to the change of well known other physical parameters like the magnetic coercive force, hardness or strength increase during various thermomechanical treatments). For this purpose a simple equipment is constructed and built by which the S shift can be measured versus the increasing mechanical tensile load. The first results will be published in this paper, obtained on various metallic glass ribbons.
