Abstract:

A series of experiments with bonding niobium to copper or a copper alloy by pack rolling in vacuum was performed in order to establish the optimum temperature and reduction, which would ensure a strong bond between both metals. The niobium copper composites are of interest as structural materials which should have a much higher heat resistance than that of copper and a lower susceptibility to local overheating than that of niobium and as insert materials for welding titanium to steel since niobium is easily welded to titanium and copper can be easily joined to steel.
