Paper Title:
Ageing Behaviour of a Cu-Cr-Zr Alloy under an Imposed Electric Current
  Abstract

A direct current was imposed during the ageing treatment of cold worked Cu-Cr-Zr alloys. The effect of increasing current density and ageing time on the electrical conductivity and microhardness has been investigated. The electrical conductivity was found to increase by about 22% IACS to a maximum value of 90% IACS. Furthermore, the microhardness increased by 21 HV up to 176 HV. A number of Cr precipitates and Cr-rich clusters were observed after the ageing treatment with direct current. The direct current was found to significantly enhance the efficiency of precipitation which is most probably due to the electron wind force and the electromigration-induced mass transport.
