We studied parameters for the shock wave consolidation of a metallic glass powder, such as the effects of the shock wave energy and the shock wave duration. Microstructural characterizations of the compacts showed that some of them remained amorphous with porosity of about 1%, and that the shock wave propagated in a planar fashion causing large particle deformations. For our experimental parameters the energy range for a successful consolidation was between 140 and 200 J/g.
