Young’s modulus and its change accompanied by heat-treatment and by cold-working in gold-silver and gold-copper alloys has been measured by lateral vibration method of a cantilever under small amount of stress. The composition dependence of Young’s modulus is monotonous in both alloy systems. Young’s modulus of Cu3Au increases and of CuAu decreases the superlattice formation. The effect of cold work on Young’s modulus is similar for some gold-silver alloys, but it differs considerably with some gold-copper alloys.
