Effect of Crystalline Phase on Dynamic Deformation Properties of Zr-Based BMG Alloys
Dynamic compressive tests were conducted on Zr-based amorphous alloys and amorphous matrix composite containing dendritic β phases. Dynamic compressive tests were conducted using a compressive Kolsky bar and then the test data were analyzed in relation to microstructure and fracture mode. Under dynamic loading, the maximum shear stress and ductility of the amorphous alloy and composite were considerably lower than those under quasi-static loading because of the decreased resistance to fracture. Deformation under dynamic loading lowered strain and compressive strength because of reduced fracture resistance, and the alloy containing dendritic β phases showed better compressive strength and ductility than the monolithic alloy.
