Thermophysical properties of molybdenum and rhenium

  • R. S. Hixson
  • M. A. Winkler


Thermophysical properties measurements have been made on the metals molybdenum and rhenium at high temperatures and a pressure of 0.2 GPa. These measured properties include volume, temperature, enthalpy, and electrical resistivity. Values for these quantities are shown for both solid and liquid phases. In addition, sound velocities were measured for liquid molybdenum.

Key words
