Thermal and Mechanical Properties of Mg-Cu(Ni)-Y(Gd) Amorphous Alloys

Abstract:

Article Preview

The thermal and mechanical characteristics of various Mg-Cu(Ni)-Y(Gd) metallic glassy alloys prepared by melt spinning are examined using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermomechanical analyzer (TMA), and instrumental nanoindenter. The replacement of Y by Gd appears to benefit both the thermal and mechanical properties, while the replacement of Cu by Ni improves only the hardness and modulus, with the sacrifice of thermal characteristics. The amorphous Mg-Cu-Gd based alloys can be fabricated into rods with a diameter greater than 6 mm, with minimum porosity and reasonable toughness.
