24 T. Arai of 26.2 wt% and for chromium it was 0.023 wt% at 14.5 wt%. They are one- fifth of the RMS-differences in Table 1.3. It was noted that no matrix correc- tions were required for specimens with only small concentration variations. Lucas-Tooth and Pyne discussed a formula where the correction factor was a constant plus the sum of products of the individual X-ray intensities of the constituent elements with correction coefficients. RMS-differences of 0.07 wt% in chromium and 0.032 wt% in manganese were reported [77]. A third report sponsored by the ASTM committee in 1964 was presented by Gillieson, Reed, Milliken, and Young [78]. Simultaneously, a report about spectrochemical analysis of high temperature alloys by spark excitation was presented. Referring to the matrix correction methods by Lucas-Tooth and Price [79] and Lucas-Tooth and Pyne, they applied a correction on the basis of X-ray intensities of the constituent elements. The measured intensities of aluminum and silicon constituents should be added in order to improve the matrix correction, thereby increasing the accuracy. Lachance and Traill studied simple matrix correction equations that were one plus the sum of products of the weight fraction of constituent elements and correction coefficients [63]. Based on the analysis of high nickel alloys that were selected from the application report, RMS-differences were calculated and are shown in Table 1.3. On the basis of the Lachance–Traill equations, Caldwell derived two kinds of correction equations [38]. The first one was a fixed correction coefficient equation and the second one was a variable correction coefficient equation for wider concentration applications, on which the third or fourth constituent elements exerted reform. RMS-differences of major constituents in variable correction coefficient calculations improved those of the fixed correction coef- ficient method. Ito, Sato, and Narita [82] studied the JIS correction equations that con- sisted of the product of a factor containing a quadratic polynomial of the intensity of the measured X-rays, and a matrix correction factor which was authorized by the JIS Committee. The coefficients of the intensity part were determined by least-squares algorithms from binary alloys with known chem- ical composition or from mathematical models, and the second factor was one plus the sum of products of the weight fractions of the constituent elements and correction coefficients, in which the terms containing the base component and the analyzing elements were excluded. In practical applications for nickel base alloys the correction coefficients of light and heavy elements from iron- based alloys were used; for the analysis of the major constituent elements, chromium, iron, and cobalt in nickel base alloys, the correction coefficients were determined experimentally.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
