Abstract

"The disaccommodation technique was used to determine the activation volume of carbon diffusion, ΔV, in six fcc iron-nickel alloys. Measurements were made at temperatures ranging from 68ºC to 90ºC and pressures up to six kilobars on samples having a nickel content between 31 and 63 at. %. A maximum activation volume of 3.9 cm³/mole was found at 34 at. % nickel. The compositional dependence of ΔV is satisfactorily reproduced by a magnetic energy continuum model in which it is assumed that the activation free energy of diffusion is essentially ferromagnetic in origin "--Abstract, page iii.
