The compressive strength of Phosphor Bronze is directly proportional to the tensile strength, For example 1/2 hard phosphor bronze has a Tensile Strength of 60 to 75 ksi and a Yield Strength of 45 to 70. For typical engineering calculations, the compressive strength can be considered equal to the yield strength.
Well,bronze is a mixture of copper and other various metals. Copper with zink - Brass; Copper with tin - Phosphor bronze; Copper with aluminum - Aluminum bronze; Copper with silicon - Silicon bronze; Copper with nickel - Copper nickel; There are more, but these are the most common. Hope this is what you were looking for.
It isn't just aircraft carriers that have bronze propellers, or more exactly phosphor bronze propellers. Many sea-going vessels have propellers of this tough alloy as it is resistant to fatigue, wear and chemical corrosion. The alloy also has a low coefficient of friction which reduces energy loss. The alloy casts very well.
Comparison: What's best or correct use of "Compliant", is it "Compliant with"? or "Compliant to"? The answer is: "Compliant with": "compliant with" is correct use. e.g. "People used to be compliant with nature's laws, and thus there used to be a harmony between human beings and nature. (See Ref @ "http://www.thefreedictionary.com/compliant")
It is a moderately good conductor, but not great. If you rate pure copper at 100%, then regular annealed copper wire rates an 85%, various aluminum alloys are between 50 an 60%, commercial annealed bronze rates a 44%, brass about 32%, and zinc about 29%. There are several different alloys of bronze, by the way, including phosphor bronze. Each has a different conductivity, so the above is rule-of-thumb info, not exact.
On an electric bass, they could be chrome plated steel, nickel plated steel, stainless steel, or a nickel/steel alloy. On an acoustic bass, they can also be steel plated with bronze or phosphor/bronze. The package the strings came in should say what metals they are made from since each metal composition has a different sound characteristic.
If it isn't a smooth polished surface, use a brass bristled brush or wire wheel attachment for a dremel tool. If it is a smooth polished surface, use a dremel with a buffing wheel and a metal polish of some type. Brasso and Excite are examples of a metal polish that will work on bronze. You can actually use plain white toothpaste, but it doesn't work as well.
