Non ferrous materials

Abstract

This chapter discusses on non-ferrous materials for structural mass production parts. Overview of elastic properties such as Young's modulus, shear modulus, Poisson's ratio, bulk modulus and Lamé's constant for copper and copper alloys is given. Operating conditions for self-lubricating bronze bearings are also given. Pore-free density and thermal expansion coefficient of copper and copper alloys are listed. Effect of density on mechanical properties such as yield strength, ultimate tensile strength, radial crushing strength, hardness of copper alloys is illustrated. Specific heat, thermal conductivity, and thermal diffusivity of copper and its alloys are also calculated. An overview of chemical composition of aluminum alloys for structural parts is also given. Young's modulus for aluminum alloys can be interpolated for different densities. Yield and tensile strength data for aluminum alloys are given. Thermal expansion coefficient, room temperature properties such as specific heat, thermal conductivity and electrical conductivity for aluminum alloys are calculated. In this chapter on structural part materials only the most common alloys are covered. Therefore, often the true effect of the pores in structural parts remains uncertain and obscured.
