In this work, the strong dependence of elastic properties on configurational changes in a Cu–Zr binary metallic glass assessed by molecular dynamics simulations is reported. By directly evaluating the temperature dependence and configurational potential energy dependence of elastic constants, the shear modulus dependence on the specific configurational inherent state of metallic glasses is shown to be much stronger than the dependence on Debye-Grüneisen thermal expansion.
