Temperature dependence of velocity in metals

I am doing some work where the temperature of the materials I have under test will vary. In particular I am working with zirconium and titanium and some of their alloys. I am looking for either data or an expression that will give me a reasonable curve showing the shear wave velocity change with temperature. Does anyone have something at hand, or a source that they can point me towards? Thanks in advance!

Re: Temperature dependence of velocity in metals
Hello,
we did some investigations on the shift of resonance frequencies under temperature variation. You can contact Thomas Herkel from RTE Akustik + Prueftechnik (T.Herkel@rte.de). He can give you some infos.

Best regards
Ingolf Hertlin

Re: Temperature dependence of velocity in metals
David:
Many years ago I work in a research facility with a chap named Dr. Doug Mair. He did a complete acoustic and materials parameter report on the properties of Zirconium (actually ZrNb -2.5% Nb)-
I am not sure of his email but he has worked with UTEX and perhaps can be located via telephone
Tel: 905-828-1313 or 1-800-663-8839
If the results of his old report are avilable it may be very helpful. I am quite sure he did a dV/dT on the material.
Regards
Ed

Dear Ed,

The material is Zr-2.5%Nb alloy, used for Pressure tubes in PHWRs (Pressurised Heavy Water Reactors) mainly found in Canada, Argentina and India.

Regards.
