what's the magnitude (order) of the temperature coefficient for the speed of solid metal?

I read a paper in which it indicates that the temperature coefficient for the speed of sound in solid germanium polycrystalline rod was about -0.000073cm/s and the temperature coefficient for fused silica is about 0.0000723cm/s, I personally think the values are too small?

Could anyone tell me what's the magnitude (order) of the temperature coefficient for the speed of solid metal?

Thank you!

Re: what's the magnitude (order) of the temperature coefficient for the speed of solid metal?
This type of question has come up before on this forum. Looking back using the search option we see it in January/March 1999.
Then a value for compression mode in a steel alloy was indicated as about 0.6m/s/C. R.Ginzel has come up with about 0.3m/s for shear modes in some alloys of steel.
In both cases this is about 0.01% of the velocity per degree C. Both are relatively small values but not as small as your quoted value which seems to be smaller by about 6 orders of magnitude.

Hello,

I measured the temperature effect of sound velocity for several metals. My measurement of the temperature coefficient of longitudinal wave for carbon steel (SA106 Gr.B) was -0.67315 m/s/degree C, and -0.48513 m/s/degree C for shear wave.

If you need more information, please let me know.

mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
