Mechanical properties and deformation behaviour of some zirconium-nickel amorphous alloys

  • G. K. Dey
  • S. Banerjee


A series of zirconium-nickel alloys have been melt-spun under identical conditions to produce partly crystalline and fully amorphous ribbons. The mechanical properties: hardness and fracture strength of these ribbons have been determined. The deformation and fracture behaviour in bending and tension have been studied and the effect of the crystalline particles on the deformation and fracture processes has been examined. The structure of the deformation defects has also been investigated.
