Electrical conductivity of some aluminium alloys

Kumar, Rajendra and Singh, Manjit (1966) Electrical conductivity of some aluminium alloys. In: Symposium on Metallurgy of Substitute Ferrous & Non-Ferrous Alloys, 27-30 April, NML, Jamshedpur.



AS INDIGENOUS resources of copper are not sufficient to meet the mounting engineering demands for the transmiss- ion of electricity, it is being increasingly replaced by aluminium as electrical conductivity of aluminium is second only to that of copper amongst engineering cond-uctor materials. Whereas copper conductors employ copper of highest purity to obtain maximum conductivity, alum-inium conductors cannot be made from super-pure alumin- ium inspite of its superior electrical conductivity as it is soft and of inferior strength.
