As a result of studying the thermal expansion of the solid solutions of refractory metals in groups IV, V and VI of the periodic system it has been established that in the curves of the dependence of the coefficient of thermal expansion upon composition in all the investigated solid solutions, no minima of maxima inherent in alloys with a ferromagnetic anomaly or in the alloys in which phases of the delta-phase are formed have been detected. In all cases the coefficient of thermal expansion of the single-phase solid solutions of refractory metals has either an approximately linear dependence upon composition chromium-vanadium, chromium-molybdenum, molybdenum-niobium, zirconium-titanium , or changes on a curve.
