    Article presents the effect of magnesium addition to copper in the range of 0,02 – 0,5 wt. %. on the mechanical, electrical and structural properties of obtained materials. All analysed alloys were produced by horizontal continuous casting set-up in the form of 9,5 mm rods. Obtained Cu-Mg alloys were next tested for their as-cast properties via Vickers hardness analysis, electrical conductivity measurements and macrostructure observations in both cross and longitudinal section. The aim of the research was to verify the influence of the magnesium content on the properties of selected Cu-Mg alloys, which are dedicated to use in overhead railway system for contact wires and catenaries

    Research on Cu-Mg castings cold drawing process and analysis of mechanical and electrical properties of obtained wires

    The aim of the conducted research works which are presented in the article was to determine the mechanical and electrical properties of Cu-Mg wires obtained in cold drawing process with total deformation at the level of 95 %. Base material for the research was obtained with the use of continuous casting process which allowed to produce CuMg0.02, CuMg0.05 and CuMg0.5 cylindrical rods with 9,5 mm diameter which were next cold drawn up to 1,97 mm diameter. After the cold drawing process Vickers hardness measurements along with static tensile test and electrical conductivity analysis were performed in order to determine the evolution of castings properties as a result of the applied cold deformation

    Research on the threaded connection system from AlMgSi alloy for electrical power cables under various clamping loads

    Get PDF
    This article presents strain gauge tests showing the force loads in the connection system of power cables, with AlMgSi sheer bolts. Among others, the analysis of the influence of the tightening torque of the clamping unit on the distribution of forces and the evaluation of the strain in the entire system was carried out. The knowledge of the force conditions and loads in the threaded connection system allowed to develop, with the use of Finite Element Method (FEM) modelling, the optimal geometry and material of elements for the power cable connection system

    Metallurgical synthesis of modified EN-AW 6082 alloy with different Mg and Si content ratio and research on basic mechanical and electrical properties of obtained materials

    Get PDF
    Research works presented in the article aim to determine optimal ratio of Mg and Si content in chemical composition of commercial EN-AW 6082 aluminium alloy in order to maximize mechanical properties of this material. Various amounts of Si (in the rage of 0,6-1,2 wt. %) and Mg (0,6-1,1 wt. %) along with 0,4 wt. % of Fe, 0,4 wt. % of Mn and 0,05 wt. % of Ti were metallurgically synthesised with the use of gravity die casting process which allowed to obtain 5 different castings. In the next phase of research works all alloys were subjected to mechanical and electrical properties testing in as cast temper and after performed heat treatment

    The recycling possibility of exploited ETP grade copper railway traction scrap has been evaluated in terms of reusing the materials of high Cu content for new traction equipment dedicated for modern railway and tram overhead lines based on CuNi2Si and CuZn37Ni1Si0,5 alloys. Firstly, the conducted research was focused on the qualitative and quantitative assessment of residual impurities of the scrap materials of carrying ropes and overhead contact lines. The main research part was the metallurgical synthesis and the impact of the said impurities on the chemical composition and selected properties of copper manufactured from scrap material
