Polarographic Determination Of Germanium, Calvin Leo Stevenson May 1953

Polarographic Determination Of Germanium, Calvin Leo Stevenson

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

In the past germanium has been determined by either wet methods or by the spectograph; the spectograph being used for the determination of very small amounts of ger­manium and wet methods used when more than one hundredth of one percent germanium is present. Both of these analyti­cal schemes have weaknesses.

Resistance Of Solid Inconel To Attack By Liquid Indium, David C. Hendra

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The role of liquid metals in industry is rap­idly becoming of increasing importance. The phys­ical and chemical tendencies of metals in the liq­uid condition must be ascertained before a metal in this form can be put to practical usage. In very many stages of mineral processing and recovery, in molten-metal baths for temperature control on heat treating, and in several industries where heat transfer is an important aspect, metals may be at one time or another in a liquid condition.

A Study Of The Diffusion Of Electroplated Coatings In The Solid State., Michael R. Writt May 1948

A Study Of The Diffusion Of Electroplated Coatings In The Solid State., Michael R. Writt

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

The term diffusion means an equalization or homogenization of diverse materials. Specifically ap­plied to metals, diffusion is the interchange of atoms. It is, in effect, an invasion of one crystal lattice by the atoms of one or more other crystal lattices. Therefore, the study of diffusion must involve the geometry and physics of crystal lattices as well as their energies.
