Title: The structural properties of Zr-based bulk metallic glasses subjected to high pressure torsion at different temperatures

Abstract

The structural properties of a Zr{sub 62}Cu{sub 22}Al{sub 10}Fe{sub 5}Dy{sub 1} bulk metallic glasses were investigated. Cylindrical rods of the Zr{sub 62}Cu{sub 22}Al{sub 10}Fe{sub 5}Dy{sub 1} BMG were subjected to high pressure torsion at temperatures of 20°C and 150°C. X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy were used to determine peculiarities of the modified structure. Analysis of fracture surfaces, nanohardness measurements were conducted to investigate the influence of structural changes on mechanical behavior of processed samples.

  • High-pressure x-ray diffraction studies have been carried out on the two group IV transition metals-based bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) Zr{sub 57}Cu{sub 15.4}Ni{sub 12.6}Al{sub 10}Nb{sub 5} and Ti{sub 42}Zr{sub 24}Cu{sub 15.5}Ni{sub 14.5}Be{sub 4} to a pressure of 30 GPa at ambient temperature in a diamond anvil cell. Image plate x-ray diffraction studies under high pressure were carried out at a synchrotron source and the two BMG diffraction bands can be followed to the highest pressure using an internal copper pressure standard. The amorphous phase is observed to be stable to the highest static pressure of 30 GPa suggesting that the phasemore » change observed in dynamical pressure experiments is related to an increase in temperature. The measured bulk modulus (B{sub 0}) and its pressure derivative (B') are 118 GPa and 3.11 for Zr-based BMG and 116 GPa and 2.84 for Ti-based BMG. The measured bulk modulus for BMG's by x-ray diffraction technique is consistent with the ultrasonic measurements. The decompression data reveal an increase in density by 3%-4% at ambient condition after pressure cycling to 30 GPa indicating reduction in excess free volume.« less
  • Mechanical properties and glass transition temperatures (T{sub g}) of Fe-Cr-Mo-P-C-B bulk metallic glasses containing up to 27 at. % metalloids have been studied. The shear modulus (G) is found to decrease with increasing metalloid content and a maximum plastic strain of {approx}3% is obtained, despite the increase in the number of strong metal-metalloid bonds. Also, T{sub g} increases with the decrease in G, in contrast to usual behavior. By employing first-principles calculations, the results are discussed in light of atomic bonding and connectivity in the amorphous network. The findings are relevant to understanding ductility and glass transition of metallic glasses.
  • Plastic deformation behaviors of Ni{sub 42}Ti{sub 20}Zr{sub 21.5}Al{sub 8}Cu{sub 5}Si{sub 3.5} and Zr{sub 51}Ti{sub 5}Ni{sub 10}Cu{sub 25}Al{sub 9} bulk metallic glasses at room temperature were studied by nanoindentation testing and atomic force microscopy under equivalent indentation experimental conditions. The different chemical composition of these two bulk metallic glasses produced variant tendencies for displacement serrated flow to occur during the loading process. The nanoindentation strain rate was calculated as a function of indentation displacement in order to verify the occurrence of displacement serrated flow at different loading rates. Atomic force microscopy revealed decreasing numbers of discrete shear bands around the indentationmore » sites as loading rates increased from 0.025 to 2.5 mNs{sup −1}. Variations in plastic deformation behaviors between Ni and Zr-based glasses materials can be explained by the different metastable microstructures and thermal stabilities of the two materials. The mechanism governing plastic deformation of these metallic glasses was analyzed in terms of an established model of the shear transformation zone. - Highlights: • Plastic deformation of Ni- and Zr-based BMG is studied under identical conditions • Zr-based BMG undergoes a greater extent of plastic deformation than Ni-based BMG • Nanoindentation strain rate is studied to clarify variation in plastic deformation • Metastable microstructure, thermal stability affect BMG plastic deformation.« less
  • Shear deformation generated temperature rise in metallic glasses is estimated in a macroscopic three-dimensional axial symmetric thermoplastic model. Numerical solution of heat-conduction equation provides the time evolution and spatial distribution of temperature for high pressure torsion in the present paper. We have shown that small sample thickness and/or high deformation rate enables the temperature to exceed the glass transition in the entire sample, yielding a transition of the deformation mode from inhomogeneous to homogeneous viscous flow. However, in other cases only a small temperature increase is predicted in line with literature data.
  • The mechanical behavior of Zr-Cu-Al bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) and in situ Ta-particle-containing composites (BMGCs) was investigated at 77 K. Their strength increased significantly while the plastic strains remained comparable value, when compared with that at 298 K. The interaction between shear bands and particles shows that shear extension in particles has limited penetration, and shear bands build up around particles. Based on a study of pair distribution functions (PDFs), carried out at cryogenic and ambient temperatures, on the as-cast Zr-Cu-Al BMGs, simulations with Reverse Monte Carlo were performed by combining icosahedral and cubic structures as the initial structures. Themore » PDFs and the refined structure showed the existence of clusters and free volume between the clusters. An attempt has been made to connect the relationship between amorphous structures and their mechanical properties.« less
