Quantitative size-factors, defined in terms of the effective atomic volume of the solute, have been calculated for 469 substitutional solid solutions using precision lattice parameter data available in the literature. Values of the volume size-factor, its linear derivative and a parameter expressing the deviation from Vegard's law, are tabulated in alphabetical order of the solvents. The application of these size-factors is discussed in relation to a number of physical, chemical and mechanical… 
Quantitative size-factors for interstitial solid solutions
Quantitative size-factors have been calculated from the initial slopes of volume/ concentration plots for interstitial solid solutions, using data available in the literature. Solutions extending
On the effective lattice parameter of binary alloys
Abstract A study of the effective lattice parameter in binary alloys is given based on an analysis of the volume change produced by dilute resolution of the solute atoms in the solvent matrix. An
Volume size factor and lattice parameter in cubic intermetallics with the B2 structure
Values of volume size factor of solid solutions have been used to predict lattice parameters in binary B2 (CsCl prototype) intermetallics. In order to do so one of the two elements has to be
The lattice dimensions of the AB2 Laves phases
A combined geometric/chemical model is proposed to account for the observed lattice dimensions of the cubic AB2 Laves phases. These compounds are treated as a hybrid structure between the simple
First-principles studies on lattice constants and local lattice distortions in solid solution aluminum alloys
Abstract Changes in the lattice constants of 55 Al-based solid solutions, as well as local lattice distortions induced by solute atoms, were studied on the basis of first-principles calculations
Volume size factor and lattice parameter in cubic intermetallics with L12 or B2 structure derived from the “Macroscopic Atom” model
Abstract Volume size factors and lattice parameters in cubic intermetallics with L1 2 or B2 structure have been derived from the “Macroscopic Atom” model. In a first step, an equation has been
Partial molar volumes and size factor data for alloy constituents of stainless steel
Partial molar volumes and size factors were determined via density measurements for all of the major components in Type 316 stainless steel. All of the substitutional components were found to exhibit
Unit Cell Volume, and Lattice Parameter of Cubic High Entropy Alloys
An equation has been derived to predict unit cell volume of high entropy alloys, HEA ́s, by two different methods. Both treatments led to the same equation. For cubic HEA ́s lattice parameters were
Ab initio study of structural distortion and its influence on the magnetic properties of metallic dilute alloys
Abstract We report a systematic study of lattice relaxation effects around 3d and 4sp impurities in aluminum, using the full-potential Korringa-Kohn-Rostoker Green function method. Our results for
Thermodynamic model of alloy grain boundaries
A facile thermodynamic model for grain boundaries in dilute alloys is developed. The macroscopic analysis is based on known descriptions of metallic solutions and the universal equation of state. The


Atomic diameters, atomic volumes and solid solubility relations in alloys
Abstract The use of the concepts of favourable and unfavourable size factor in predicting solid solubilities in metallic systems is discussed. The original concept of Hume-Rothery, Mabbott and
Superconducting state parameters in dilute alloys
Abstract A semi-empirical formalism is presented for the calculation of transition temperature, thermodynamic critical field, and specific heat in dilute alloys of type 1 superconductors. The
Superconducting primary substitutional solid solutions, consisting of niobium, vanadium or tantalum (column V of the periodic table) alloyed with a metal of column IVA or VIA, show interesting
Residual Resistivity of Copper and Silver Alloys: Dependence on Periodic Table
Attention is called here to the fact that polyvalent impurities of the silver period of the periodic table give rise to a smaller residual resistivity in both copper and silver than do polyvalent
Distortion of a Crystal by Point Imperfections
The expression u=c r/r 3, (where c is a constant) sometimes assumed for the displacement around a point imperfection (interstitial or substitutional impurity, lattice vacancy) gives a nonzero stress

Departures from Vegard's Law
A new method, based on second‐order elasticity, has been developed to predict departures from Vegard's law in binary alloy systems in which the end members have similar outer‐electronic structures.
RESEARCH NOTES: Excitation of a vibration magnetometer: especially suitable for use in cryostats
A magnetometer is described in which a sample can be vibrated parallel to the magnetic field within the narrow gap between the pole-piece of an electromagnet. The sample is vibrated by the periodic
Étude de la loi de Vegard
A partir d'un schema tres simple on peut obtenir l'ordre de grandeur et le sens des differences entre les resultats experimentaux et les previsions de la loi de Vegard relative aux solutions solides.
