Experimental Analysis of Mechanical Properties of Aluminum Alloy LM-4 by Variation of Copper Content


Copper is the only material that is having greatest impact of all alloying elements on the strength and hardness of aluminum cast alloys. Cu improves the machinability of aluminum alloys by increasing the hardness, making it easier to generate small cutting chips and fine machined finishes. On the other side, copper generally reduces the corrosion… (More)
