Abstract
Abstract The parameters of shear band evolution with deformation were examined in the Vit105 bulk metallic glass. For this purpose, two halves of disks of the bulk metallic glass were joined together and processed by high-pressure torsion for various strains: from compression without rotation, to rotation for 5 revolutions. The discrepancy between the experimentally observed and predicted shear strains was detected. The actual strain is significantly smaller than the predicted one. The SEM examination of the internal surfaces of two joint halves of an HPT-processed disk allowed to study the formation and accumulation of shear bands under an increased imposed strain. The maximum density of the shear bands is observed at the edges of the HPT samples and in areas adjacent to the upper anvils. An increase in strain leads to an increase in the shear bands density. The observed minimum shear band spacing is equal to 0.5 μm after HPT processing for 5 revolutions. According to the structural changes recorded by XRD (an increase in the free volume content by about 1.3%) and formation of a high density of shear bands, HPT leads to a significant structural transformation of the amorphous structure of the BMG.

Abstract The Zr62Cu22Al10Fe5Dy1 bulk metallic glass (BMG) was subjected to high pressure torsion (HPT) at room temperature. The state after HPT processing demonstrates presence of large number of heterogeneities in amorphous structure – shear bands. Nanoindentation was used to study the effect of HPT processing on deformation behavior and strain rate sensitivity (m). It was found that HPT significantly affects mechanical behavior of BMG during nanoindentation. Decrease in hardness and Young's mo...

Abstract Special TEM procedure is used to study in detail the microstructure of the melt-spun (MS) amorphous alloy Ti50Ni25Cu25 subjected to high-pressure torsion (HPT). The cross section of an HPT-processed disc-shaped sample is studied. Groups of shear bands (SBs) are revealed on the lamellae cut from the HPT-processed samples. Nanocrystals form directly in the shear bands as a result of strain-induced nanocrystallization. Amorphous nanoclusters with a size of 20 nm form in the amorphous phase...

Abstract The influence of heat treatment and deformation on structural changes of Al-based amorphous alloys in the amorphous state and at early stages of crystallization has been studied using the methods of X-ray diffraction, differential scanning calorimetry and transmission electron microscopy. It is shown that isothermal annealing and multiple cold rolling bring about formation of an inhomogeneous amorphous phase with the areas of different chemical composition. The formation of an inhomogen...

Metallic glasses boast high strength, but their low ductility has been a major concern. Here, taking a structural perspective and citing selected examples, we advocate purposely enhanced structural inhomogeneities, in an otherwise compositionally uniform and single-phase amorphous alloy, to promote distributed plastic flow. Four current tactics (the four R's) to improve deformability are highlighted, from the standpoint of structural, and consequentially mechanical, heterogeneities that can be t...

The amorphous melt-spun (MS) Ti50Ni25Cu25 alloy is subjected to high-pressure torsion (HPT) at temperatures of 20-150 °C. The bright-field (BF) TEM images of the alloy change as a result of HPT processing, the view of the bright-field image depends on the temperature of HPT processing. HPT processing leads to a decrease in the energy of structural relaxation during heating up to 400 °C, in comparison with the initial MS ribbons. The temperature of crystallization of the MS Ti50Ni25Cu25 alloy dec...

Mg 65 Cu 25 Gd 10 bulk metallic glass (BMG), containing a high density of intersecting extended shear bands (SBs), was fabricated from densification of amorphous powder via high-pressure torsion (HPT). The extended SBs, up to 400 nm in width and containing nanocrystalline structures, were studied by electron microscopy. The mechanisms responsible for the formation of the high density of extended SBs are discussed and related to the high hydrostatic pressure and shear strains imposed during HPT o...

Abstract null null The paper analyzes the effect of severe plastic deformation on the structure, mechanical and thermal properties of a Zr42.5Сu42.5Al10Fe5 alloy. It was found that high pressure torsion induces phase separation of an amorphous matrix and causes formation of a complex structure containing nanocrystalline particles. The precipitation of nanocrystals leads to a change in the composition of the amorphous matrix and changes in the crystallization process and characteristic temperatur...

Rolling processes are extensively used to induce network of shear bands (SBs) in the bulk metallic glasses, which in turn enhances the overall plasticity of the specimen. However, the atomic-level understanding of shear band formation/propagation mechanism during mechanical processing is still limited. In this perspective, we have developed a molecular dynamics (MD) simulation model to recreate the rolling deformation process and investigate the SB formation in Cu-Zr metallic glass (MG) specimen...

Abstract The impact of thermo-mechanical treatment, in particular of room temperature high-pressure torsion (HPT), cold rolling and cryogenic thermo-cycling on shear band diffusion in a model Pd40Ni40P20 bulk metallic glass is investigated. Tracer diffusion measurements reveal the existence of fast short-circuit diffusion in deformed glasses and the diffusion enhancement was found to depend on the processing mode. The HPT processing imposes an extremely large shear deformation under quasi-hydros...

The prospective applications of metallic glasses are limited by their lack of ductility, attributed to shear banding inducing catastrophic failure. A concise depiction of the local atomic arrangement (local atomic packing and chemical short-range order), induced by shear banding, is quintessential to understand the deformation mechanism, however still not clear. An explicit view of the complex interplay of local atomic structure and chemical environment is presented by mapping the atomic arrange...

Abstract Shear bands were introduced into a Zr–Ti–Cu–Ni–Al bulk metallic glass (BMG) by one-directional cold rolling and the effect on fracture toughness anisotropy was examined. Two different rolling and shear band orientations relative to the crack plane were used, with the rolling force oriented along either the width (CR-W) or thickness (CR-T) direction of single edge notched bend specimens. The results showed the CR-W samples demonstrated a 50% reduction in KQ relative to the as-cast materi...

Abstract Tb75Fe25 nanoglass samples were prepared by cold pressing amorphous nanoparticles (produced by the inert gas condensation method). One of the bulk nanoglass samples was severely plastically deformed using the high-pressure torsion. The structure of the deformed and non-deformed nanoglass samples was examined by X-ray diffraction. Differential scanning calorimetry of the samples showed a higher thermal stability of the non-deformed sample when compared to the severely plastically deforme...

Recent studies showed that structural changes in amorphous alloys under high pressure torsion (HPT) are determined by their chemical composition and processing regimes. For example, HPT treatment of some amorphous alloys leads to their nanocrystallization; in other alloys, nanocrystallization was not observed, but structural transformations of the amorphous phase were revealed. HPT processing resulted in its modification by introducing interfaces due to the formation of shear bands. In this case...
