PHOSPHORUS AND ARSENIC IN STEEL AND THE SUBSTITUTION THEORY

The theory of atomic distribution of the stranger atoms in the space lattice of the solvent metal has been well developed by Rosenhain (1) . It has long been known that the addition of one metal to another to form a solid solution increases the strength and hardness of the solvent metal. This increase is practically proportional to the amount of added substance up to the limit of solid solubility.
