Thermodynamic Model and Synthesis of Bulk Metallic Glass in Cu-Zr-Ti System by Mechanical Alloying
Based on the thermodynamic and topological approach, Cu60Zr30Ti10 has been identified as the best bulk metallic glass forming composition in Cu-Zr-Ti system. Bulk metallic glass has been successfully produced using mechanical alloying of elemental blends and consolidation of the resulting glassy powders into pellets of 8 mm diameter. Dry sliding wear of glassy pellets at different annealed states showed that the relaxed metallic glass has excellent wear resistance.
