The Effect of Temperature on Some Properties of Iron-Chromium-Nickel Alloys


Since the 1924 symposium on the effect of temperature on the properties of metals, considerable advances have been made in the development and exploitation of the alloys of nickel and chromium with iron. Peculiarly adapted for many engineering requirements by a fortunate combination of physical and chemical characteristics they have found application in a diversity of uses at temperatures ranging from far below atmospheric as in apparatus for liquefaction of gases, to temperatures removed by but a few hundred degrees from their melting points, as in certain furnace parts. It is not intended to suggest that a particular composition is well fitted for general use under all conditions within this wide temperature range but rather to indicate the widely divergent viewpoints from which it is possible to consider the question of what properties of this group of alloys are of engineering importance and might properly come under review.
