Thermal and elastic properties of Cu–Zr–Be bulk metallic glass forming alloys


The compositional dependence of thermal and elastic properties of Cu–Zr–Be ternary bulk metallic glass forming alloys was systematically studied. There exists a linear relationship between the glass transition temperature Tg and the total Zr concentration. G decreases linearly with increasing Zr concentration as well. The results also show that Tg, shear modulus G, and Poisson's ratio nu are very sensitive to changes in compositions. Low Tg, low G, and relatively high nu can be achieved with high Zr and Ti concentration.
