Abstract

A simple model to predict the relative occupation numbers of various interstitial sites in intermetallic hydrides is proposed. The model assumes that the occupation numbers are determined by Boltzmann distribution function as well as by the heat of formation of the “imaginary binary hydrides” formed between the hydrogen atoms and the host metallic atoms forming the interstitial sites. Comparison of our calculations with recent neutron scattering data on various hydrides indicate good agreement at T=300 K.
