Unformatted text preview: MET 34800 ENGINEERING MATERIALS IUPUI ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY ENT Department CHAPTER 18 COPPER AND ITS ALLOYS Engineering Materials: properties and selection, 9th ed. Kenneth G. Budinski, Michael K. Budinski Upon completion of this chapter, the student should: have an understanding of the nature of copper and copper alloys, their metallurgy, and the products available have a knowledge of copper and copper alloy designation and properties have guidelines to aid in selection of copper and copper alloys for engineering design. CHAPTER GOALS Copper is traded internationally as a commodity metal, but it also has great importance as an engineering material. In fact, in its role as an electrical conductor, it may be the worlds most important metal. None of the electronics that we have would be possible without copper. Gold would do the job, but the supply is not adequate and the cost would make it prohibitive. 3 Figure 181 An open-pit copper mine in Utah, in the United States. The black spots in the center of the photo are trucks, each carrying 300 tons of ore.
