Abstract [en]

Microstructure evolution in the as-cast pure Cu, Cu-(1.0, 2.0, 3.0)Fe-0.5Co (wt. %) alloys were characterized in the former work. The aim of the present study is to investigate the slow strain rate tensile (SSRT) performance and fracture behavior of the Cu–Fe–Co alloys reinforced with fined grains (FG) and iron-rich nanoparticles (NP), referred as NPFG structure. The plastic deformation and fracture characteristics were examined by multiaxial SSRT tests at 75 and 125 °C on notched specimens. The addition of Fe and Co enhanced the ultimate tensile strength and yield strength almost by double to triple times the properties compare to pure Cu, along with an acceptable reduction in ductility, both at 75 and 125 °C. The SSRT properties of the copper samples varied as a function of temperature and alloying content. The analysis of fracture surface indicates the effect of iron-rich nanoparticles and grain boundaries on the deformation and fracture processes. The Kocks-Mecking model was applied to describe the SSRT experimental results with fitting parameters. The model predicted the dynamic recovery ability of the copper samples with different Fe, Co content and temperature. The evolution mechanism of SSRT properties upon alloying content and temperature was discussed in terms of the microstructure characterization, fractographic observation, deformation modeling, strengthening models as well as the analysis of strain-hardening curves. The results indicate through further microstructural engineering the NPFG Cu–Fe–Co alloy is promising in utilization as the canister for the storage of the nuclear waste.
