Transformation Kinetics of α+γ2 to ß in Cu-Al Alloy after Cryogenic Treatment


Article Preview

The transformation temperature and time of α+γ2 to ß in a Cu-Al alloy after cryogenic treatment during heating were measured by DSC, and the transformation activation energy of α+γ2 to ß was also calculated. It is indicated that the Cu-Al alloy with heating rate of 10°C/min, the phase transformation onset and ending temperature is 561.75°C and 582.88°C, respectively, and the phase transformation time is126.6S. The phase transformation activation energy decreases with the increasing volume fraction of their phase transformation.
