Part of the Studies in Soviet Science book series (STSS)


A study has been made of the concentration dependence of the specific electrical resistivity, Hall coefficient, absolute thermo-emf, magnetic susceptibility, microhardness, and crystal lattice constant at room temperature, and also of the temperature dependence of the specific electrical resistivity and the coefficient of the thermo-emf in the range 77–300°K, of alloys in the system TaC-WC in the solid-solution region. The regular features observed in the changes in physical properties and the qualitative explanation of them are in accordance with current ideas regarding the electron structure of transition-metal carbides. The authors have put forward a suggestion concerning the strengthening of the covalent bond in the Me-Me band of the solid solutions.
