Very few mechanical property tests have been conducted on welded or brazed copper and copper alloys. The only published low-temperature results are those of Lismer [1] who tested welded copper-nickel alloys. These alloys (Cu-20, 30% Ni) exhibited Increased tensile and notch-tensile weld strengths as the temperature was lowered below room temperature.
