Investigations on Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of the Cu/Pb-free Solder Joint Interfaces

This thesis offers a sequence of mechanical try equipment and comprehensively investigates the deformation and harm habit of Cu/Pb-free solder joints less than diverse loading stipulations. The fracture habit of Pb-free joint interfaces brought about through pressure, deformation of solder and substrate are proven, the shear fracture energy of the Cu6Sn5 IMC is measured experimentally for the 1st time, and the dynamic harm procedure and microstructure evolution habit of Pb-free solder joints are printed intuitively.

(d) Layered MoSi2/Nb composite. 6 SUMMARY A brief introduction to the structure of materials has been presented in this chapter. Following a review of the structure of crystalline and amorphous materials, the different classes of materials (metals, polymers, ceramics, intermetallics, and semiconductors and composites) were introduced.

Copyright © 2003 Marcel Dekker, Inc. An almost infinite spectrum of composite materials should be readily apparent to the reader. However, with the exception of natural composites, only a limited range of composite materials have been produced for commercial purposes. 16(a)–(d)]. Composites reinforced with co-continuous, interpenetrating networks of reinforcement matrix and reinforcement materials have also been produced, along with woven fiber composites from which most textiles are made. Most recently, there has also been considerable interest in the development of functionally (continuously) graded layered composites in which the interfacial layers are graded to control composite residual stress levels and thermal characteristics.
