Bhagiradha Rao, E S and Pal, A T (1969) The applicability of size-factor and electron concentration concepts to alloying behaviour of copper. In: UNSPECIFIED.
DURING the last forty years there has been much progress in the understanding of principles governing the formation of alloys. These have been put forward in the form of empirical generalisations and schemes involving factors like valencies, size-factors, etc. and as has happened with all other branches of science empirical formulations forming the basis for advances in theory, the enunciated empirical rules have formed the basis for advances in the theory of alloys. In the formulation of these empirical generalisations it is natural that alloys of simple metals should have played a major role, for with simple metals complicating influences governing alloy formation are minimised.Copper being a simple metal1 has therefore found much favour for being chosen for understanding electronic structure of metals and it has also been used in the study of alloys for formulating empirical rules of alloy formation. These rules are due to the work of Hume-Rothery and his collaborators2a in 1930s and were advanced from a study of alloy systems of copper, silver and gold with other group B metals.
