Mechanical properties of vanadium-alloyed copper and nickel-vanadium alloys at elevated temperatures
- 112 Downloads
Vanadium is useful deoxidizing and alloying addition to copper and nickel; small additions (up to 0.4% in copper and up to 1% in nickel) improve the mechanical properties of the alloys while reducing the effect of temperature on static tensile strength.
Addition of vanadium to copper eleminates the brittle range at 500°C.
