Viscosity Measurements of Zr55Cu30Al10Ni5 Supercooled Liquid Alloy under High-Speed Heating Conditions
Viscosity of a Zr55Cu30Al10Ni5 supercooled liquid alloy having bulk metallic glass forming ability has been measured by using a penetration viscometer with a cylindrical probe under high speed heating conditions at rates between 20°C/min and 400°C/min in the temperature range from the glass transition temperatures (Tg) up to above the crystallization temperatures (Tx). The viscosity of the alloy decreased with increasing the heating rate and tended to saturate at the heating rate of 200°C/min and above. Corresponding measurements of the differential thermal calorimetry (DSC) under the high-speed heating conditions have been also done.
