Data available in the open literature on diffusion in tungsten, tantalum, molybdenum, niobium, platinum, hafnium, zirconium, vanadium, chromium, and titanium is reviewed and evaluated. Information on ninety-five binary systems and thirteen ternary or higher order systems is reported.

Care was taken to make this report as complete as possible at this time. For some systems where no diffusion data was available, diffusion coefficients were estimated from existing theories or from data on diffusion controlled processes.
