The Influence of Stacking Fault Energy on the Cold-Rolling Cu and Cu-Al Alloy: Structure and Mechanics Properties
Sacking fault energy (SFE) is the key role in solving this problem of getting high strength and expected ductility simultaneously. This work adds Al as the procedure of decreasing SFE in Cu face-centered cubic. It is an economic and effective method to counterpart Cold-rolling at liquid nitrogen temperature to get high density deformation twin and ultrafine-grains size. After undergoing tensile and X-ray diffraction tests, Cu-4.5 wt.% Al plays the best performance on both strength and ductility. Thus there exist the optimal SFE of Cu-Al alloys which get both high strength and expected ductility simultaneously.
