Search for High Damping Metallic Glasses
In a hydrogen-doped metallic glass, there appear low-temperature and high-temperature internal friction peaks respectively associated with a point-defect relaxation and the crystallization. The high-temperature-side slope of low-temperature peak and also the low-temperature-side slope of high-temperature peak enhance the background internal friction near the room temperature. A hydrogen-doped Mg-base metallic glass was proposed as a high-damping material to be used near and somewhat above the room temperature. Stability of the high damping was also checked.
