Cu-Bi alloy with high Bi content can be used for thermal surge protection and energy storage. For these applications, creep at high temperatures, including temperatures above the melting temperature of Bi, T-m,T-Bi, becomes important. Accordingly, the creep behavior of Cu-Bi alloys, comprising 30 and 40 vol pct Bi, was studied under compression at temperatures above and below T-m,T-Bi. At 200 degrees C, which is below T-m,T-Bi, Cu-Bi showed a stress exponent of similar to 4 at high stresses and similar to 1 at low stresses. Finite element analysis revealed that the creep behavior of Cu-Bi at 200 degrees C was predominantly governed by Bi. On the other hand, at temperatures higher than T-m,T-Bi, Cu-Bi showed a short transient stage at high stresses, followed by sudden failure of the material. However, at low stresses, the sample first continued to expand and then started to accumulate compressive strain. A qualitative model based on interaction between liquid Bi and Cu is developed to explain the observed creep behavior at temperatures higher than T-m,T-Bi. The results obtained here shed light on the creep behavior of alloys with constituents having significantly different creep behavior and containing a non-reacting liquid phase.
