Temperature and Strength of Metals

Influence of temperature on strength of metals

The diagram below indicates the influence of temperature on the strength of

  • bronze
  • copper
  • structural steel
  • castings steel
  • cast iron
  • wrought iron
  • stainless steel (304N)

Strength of Metals - SI Units

Example - Strength of Copper at 100 oC

As indicated in the first figure - the strength of copper is reduced to approximately

95 % at 100 oC

With an ultimate strength of 220 MPa for copper - the strength is reduced to

0.95 (220 MPa)

= 209 MPa
