Study on Glass Forming Ability for the Nd60-xCo15+xAl25 Alloys
Bulk Nd60-xCo15+xAl25 (where x =0, 2, 5, 8, 11) sheet alloys were prepared by argon arc melting and suction casting a copper mold. Glassing forming ability (GFA) of these alloys was investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Due to the dissimilarity reflected from DSC curves the thermodynamic calculation was applied. The values of Gibbs free energy (∆Gl-x (Tg)) for the amorphous alloys were gave out and some GFA criterions were adopted to make a comparison among the samples.
