Effects of microstructure and chemical composition on strength and impact toughness of tin bronzes


The present study is concerned with examining metallurgical features and their significance on strength and impact toughness of tin bronzes, with particular reference to bells. It has embraced a number of interrelated aspects – alloy types – composition, constitution and properties, fabrication technology, service life and effects of environmental/working conditions on strength and impact toughness of bell materials from Gothic, Modern and Recent Eras. The results are discussed in terms of qualitative assessment of microstructural features of these different cast tin bronzes examined in destructive tests.
