Heat transfer and materials flow modelling of FSW for CuCrZr alloy using experimentally determined thermo-physical properties

A three dimensional heat transfer and material flow based model using experimentally measured thermo-physical properties has been developed for friction stir welding (FSW) of Cu-0.8Cr-0.1Zr alloy. CuCrZr alloy is a precipitation hardened copper alloy …

Friction Stir Welding of Copper: Numerical Modeling and Validation

High thermal and electrical conductivities, corrosion resistance and relatively good strength lead to use of copper and its alloys for several engineering applications. Copper alloys also find application in the nuclear industry for manufacturing …
