Research Article


Thermal, mechanical and thermomagnetic properties associated with the magnetic and structural transition of an amorphous Fe80Cr5B15 alloy are described. The investigation was carried out in a simultaneous dilatometric and thermomagnetic experiment. An anomaly of the thermal expansion coefficient at the Curie point and a change in mechanical properties just before the onset of crystallization are observed. The results are compared with the thermal behavior obtained by differential scanning calorimetry.
