Dec. '06 High Strength Copper Steel for Rail Tank Cars to Bridges This paper shows that the new Copper Steel has advantages over steel presently used in railroad tank cars. The higher strength leads to weight saving; higher impact fracture toughness mitigates against brittle failure particularly at low temperatures. An update of recently completed bridge using the Cu Steel is also provided.
Mar. '06 Neptune’s Daughters: Copper-Nickel Creates Two Dream-team Alloys for Seawater Applications Sitting comfortably at atomic number 29 in the Periodic Table, the element Copper is a friendly, outgoing sort of person, getting on superbly well with both of her nearest neighbours...But it is with the element Nickel, at atomic number 28, that copper has a really special affinity. The elegant simplicity of their mutual relationship results in the uniquely performing, two copper-rich nickel alloys, CuNi 90/10 and 70/30. These two alloys are both so compatible with the exacting marine environment of seawater, that they could truly be regarded as the "daughters" of Father Neptune.
Nov. '03 Copper Hull Sheathing Foils Barnacles Copper-nickel alloy C70600, when applied to a hull surface will provide excellent corrosion and biofouling resistance in seawater. When the copper-nickel alloy is provided in the form of a suspension in an epoxy resin and modern adhesive technology, it provides a thoroughly cost effective and labor-saving DIY solution for antifouling treatment.
Sep. '01 Die-Cast Copper Motor Rotors Heading for Success A look a the on-going research designed to take advantage of copper's high conductivity in such a way as to enable the creation of ultrahigh-efficiency electric motors being conducted by an industry-government consortium of which the Copper Development Association (CDA) is a member.
