Effects of Minor Additions on Ni- and Be-Free Ti-Based Bulk Glassy Alloys
We investigated the effects of addition elements (Sn, Al, Si, Ag, Fe, Cr) with a small amount on the glass-forming ability, thermal stability and mechanical properties of the Ti-Zr-Cu-Pd glassy alloy system. The results revealed that minor Sn addition improved the glass-forming ability, thermal stability and plasticity, Si addition enlarged the supercooled liquid region, and Fe addition improved the plasticity, while minor additions of Si, Ag, Fe, and Cr lowered the glass-forming ability, and Al and Cr additions were harmful to the plasticity of the Ti-Zr-Cu-Pd glassy alloy system.
