Physical and Mechanical Properties of the Amorphous and Nanocrystalline Alloys


Article Preview

An amoprphous and nanocrystalline ribbon is produced applying the technology of rapid molten metal quenching. The chemical composition of the alloy is required to contain elements ensuring the amorphous structure formation in the course of quenching. A great number of various chemical elements in amorphous and nanocrystalline alloys contribute to the complex process of the structure formation in the course of heat treatment of the amorphous precursor. After heat treatment, the structure of the soft magnetic material can remain amorphous or partially crystallized or nanocrystalline. The results of an investigation into the melts’ property of iron-based amorphous and nanocrystalline alloys are presented in the paper. The structure has been shown to influence mechanical properties of the material in preparing the melt before casting.
