Grahic Jump Location
SEM micrograph shows the microstructure in the 63Sn/37Pb solder. The Pb-rich phase is the light phase, while the Sn-rich phase is the darker one.
Grahic Jump Location
Creep-time curves obtained at the temperature of 25°C for different stress levels
Grahic Jump Location
Creep strain rate-time curves obtained at different temperatures and stress levels. Three times shown on each curve are times at the beginning of secondary stage, tertiary stage, and fracture point from left to right.
Grahic Jump Location
63Sn/37Pb solder creep behavior at different temperatures. The vertical line on each data point shows the variation range of creep strain rate at certain testing condition.
Grahic Jump Location
Stress exponent as a function of temperature for different stress regimes
Grahic Jump Location
Creep strain rate versus reciprocal of temperature
Grahic Jump Location
Activation energy as a function of temperature at the normalized shear stress level of τ/G=3×10−4
Grahic Jump Location
Comparison of the creep deformation obtained from the experiments and that from new unified dislocation-controlled creep model
Grahic Jump Location
Comparison of the creep deformation obtained from the experiments and those from the three diffusion controlled constitutive models
Grahic Jump Location
Deformation mechanism map for 63Sn/37Pb eutectic solder alloy. The numbers on the iso-lines represent the creep strain rates (unit: 1/sec) at different testing conditions.
Grahic Jump Location
Creep data published by different researchers for the eutectic solder. The gray iso-lines represent the creep strain rates same as those given in Fig. 10. The numbers are log10(dγ/dt).
