Energy dispersive X-ray diffraction was used to study the structural evolution of a bulk metallic glass (BMG) alloy and its composite with W particles under hydrostatic pressure. The diffraction data, especially the pair distribution function (PDF) of the BMG allowed the direct measurement of its elastic strain. The results suggest that PDF patterns of BMGs can be used to deducetheir strain evolution in composites as well as in monolithic form. Although the PDF method of strain measurement in amorphous alloys offers lower resolution compared to the analysis of Bragg reflections from crystalline materials, the PDF techique yields valuable information about the deformation of BMGs.
