New features of the low temperature ductile shear failure observed in bulk amorphous alloys


Fractographic studies of ductile shear failure under the uniaxial compression for rod–like samples of the Zr_(41.2)Ti_(13.8)Ni_(10)Cu_(12.5)Be_(22.5) and Cu₅₀Zr₃₅Ti₈Hf₅Ni₂ bulk amorphous alloys at temperatures 300 and 77 K are presented. The mechanisms of shear deformation and failure appeared to have characteristics in common with other amorphous alloys prepared in the form of thin ribbons. However, there were a number of new fractographic features observed due to the bulk character of the samples and to the large supercooled liquid region of these alloys.
