Melt penetration in grain boundaries of solid tungsten has been investigated. Solid tungsten rods have been exposed to a nickel-iron melt saturated with tungsten and the penetration depth and the shape of the liquid channels have been examined. The solid tungsten samples have been treated in different ways like cold working, annealing and recrystallisation, before melt exposure. Important parameters for the penetration process are stresses, surface tensions, solution and kinetic effects. A new theoretical model for the penetration mechanism in cold worked samples is proposed. Rapid recovery of the grains in the penetrated areas of the cold worked samples was observed. This is discussed, as well.
