A number of titanium alloy solutions each containing 2 percent of tin, zirconium, and columbium, and, in addition, either 10 or 20 percent of aluminum or vanadium were prepared. There was no effect on the determination of the tin, zirconium, or columbium regardless of the presence or absence of the aluminum or vanadium. The effect of changing the matrix element from titanium to iron on the relative intensities observed for nickel and chromium was also investigated. Identical amounts of nickel but varying amounts of chromium were added to a group of three iron samples and two titanium samples. Spectrographic solution techniques were applied to a number of series of alloy types, including columbium, vanadium, iron, and molybdenum base alloys. Applications to titanium and uranium alloys are described briefly. The experimental series of uranium alloys submitted for analysis contained columbium, vanadium, titanium, molybdenum, and zirconium.
