Abstract: Cu-14Fe and Cu-17Fe alloys were produced by casting and processed into in situ composites by hot and cold deformation, and intermediate heat treatment. The microstructures were investigated by using a scanning electron microscope and an optical microscope. The electrical conductivity was evaluated by using a digital micro-ohmmeter. The tensile strength was measured by using an electronic tensile-testing machine. The results show that there are similar cast and deformation microstructures in Cu-14Fe and Cu-17Fe. The tensile strength of deformation-processed Cu-17Fe in situ composite is much higher than that of Cu-14Fe, while the conductivity of deformation-processed Cu-17Fe in situ composite is slightly lower than that of Cu-14Fe at the same cold deformation strain. The Cu-17Fe in situ composite produced by using proper thermo-mechanical processing possesses a good combination of tensile strength and electrical conductivity.

Abstract: Pulse Current Heating (PCH) process is a new method characteristic with shorter time and lower temperature to the fabrication of materials. In the present paper, the PCH was used to join Cu/Fe. The microstructures of the joined samples were observed by optical microscope, the diffusions of elements near the interfaces were made qualitative and quantitative analyses by Electron Probe Mechanism. Diffusion coefficients of Cu and Fe at PCH and Radiation Heating (RH) joining methods were compared. The results showed that, the transition layer widths were from 5 to 8 μm when the Cu/Fe joined at 750 to 850°C under 5 MPa pressure with holding times 5 or 10 or 15min. Width of the transition layer increase with the increasing of joining temperature and the extension of holding time. The initial interface will move from the Cu side to the Fe one due to the Kirkendall effect. The diffusion coefficients both of Cu and Fe to PCH joining were larger by three orders of magnitude than those of RH joining. The differences between the two methods were analyzed from dynamics and thermodynamics.
