Abstract:

An evaluation was made of a thermodynamic theory which states that an alloy under uniaxial elastic stress will show increased concentrations of interstitial constituents in solid solution when the stress is tensile and a decrease in the concentration of the interstitial under compressive stress, as compared to a stress-free system when the thermodynamic activity of the interstitial is kept constant at a constant temperature.
