Many empirical relations between the diffusion parameters Q and D0 and other physical properties of materials have been proposed during the past 30 to 40 years. In general the relations are of two types:
  1. (a)

    those derived without any consideration of diffusion mechanism, and

  2. (b)

    those derived on the basis of some assumed mechanism.
