In earlier studies, it was shown that the inclusion of bismuth (Bi) in Sn, Sn-Ag, Sn-Cu, and SAC-based alloys leads to a stabilization of the as-solidified mechanical properties after aging at temperatures above the alloy's solvus (where all precipitates are allowed to dissolve into and diffuse through the p-Sn matrix, leading to a uniform, homogenous microstructure).
At temperatures below the solvus curve, a solid solution is no longer structurally stable but tends to reject solute atoms from its own lattice.
DHC testing is sensitive to the temperature history, the maximum value is attained by cooling from a temperature higher than the solvus temperature of hydrogen in the specimen, and therefore a temperature cycle was applied to all specimens before testing.
