Strengthening of lamellar vs. equiaxed Ag-Cu eutectic

  author={Harvey E. Cline and D. A. Lee},
Abstract The strength of the Ag-Cu eutectic was measured by tension testing for two different types of structure over a range of sizes, temperatures and strain rates. One was a lamellar structure which was produced by high speed directional solidification and the other an equiaxed structure resulting from deformation and recrystallization. At elevated temperatures the material with the lamellar structure was much stronger than that with the equiaxed structure. The equiaxed structure was… CONTINUE READING
