In a recent study [1, 2] it was shown that hardening by a spinodal decomposition process in Cu-9Ni-6Sn can be controlled to some extent by quaternary trace element additions. The added trace element did not have any influence on the spinodal decomposition process, but it significantly influenced the kinetics of the formation of the (CuNi) Sn precipitate. Because of the beneficial hardening observed in these alloys, the Cu-Ni-Sn spinodal alloys have come into commercial prominence in recent years[4, 5]. In the light of this, it was considered worthwhile to examine the fracture behaviour of these alloys in different thermally treated conditions.
