Features of the formation of shear bands and nanocrystalline phases upon the megaplastic deformation of amorphous alloys based on iron, nickel, and titanium at room temperature in a Bridgman chamber are analyzed via transmission electron microscopy. It is shown that the transition from strongly localized to quasi-homogeneous plastic deformation occurs at a definite stage of the inhomogeneous plastic flow. Mechanisms based on the self-blocking of propagating shear bands by particles of the nanocrystalline phase that emerge due to a dissipative increase in the temperature along the front of shear bands are proposed for the delocalization of plastic flow.
