Abstract
An academic study of the dissolution kinetics of niobium in a titanium melt is presented. A series of experiments was performed, using an inductive cold crucible melting furnace. The experimental samples, small rods of niobium and billets of titanium, are submitted to geometrical and chemical characterization. In the paper, experimental dissolution results are presented and are expressed in the form of a mass transfer coefficient.
