Title: Softening caused by profuse shear banding in a bulk metallic glass

Abstract

By controlling the specimen aspect ratio and strain rate, compressive strains as high as 80% were obtined in an otherwise brittle metallic glass. Physical and mechanical properties were measured after deformation, and a systematic strain-induced softening was obseerved which contrasts sharply with the hardening typically observed in crystalline metals.
