Abstract:

Allis-Chaimers A-C investigated the use of a thermoelectric method for determining interstitial gases in titanium. The test method measured the thermoelectric effect generated between the test metal and a heated, constant temperature, electrode. Various contact probe materials were evaluated. No correlation could be drawn between the controlled variable oxygen and the thermoelectric results. The inconsistent variation in the chemical composition of the test specimens is considered the cause for an indeterminate test. Author
