Ti-Based Bulk Metallic Glass with High Cold Workability at Room Temperature


Article Preview

The cold workability of Ti-based bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) have been investigated. Ti45Zr16Be20Cu10Ni9 BMG with a large compressive plastic strain of 4.7 % shows a high cold workability, i.e. total reduction ratio of 50 % by cold rolling at room temperature. The multiple shear bands formed during rolling are effective in enhancing the plasticity. The cold rolled Ti45Zr16Be20Cu10Ni9 BMG (reduction ratio: 30 %) exhibits a large plastic strain of ~14 %.
