High fatigue strength is one of the important factors that facilitates the industrial usage of bulk metallic glasses (BMGs). Fatigue data were analyzed using the Weibull probability models for BMGs produced with different casting processes in order to study the reliability of fatigue strengths of cast glassy alloys. The fatigue data of tilt-cast and high-pressure-cast BMGs can be explained by a three-parameter Weibull cumulative distribution function (cdf) and a mixture model of two-parameter Weibull cdfs, respectively. We conclude that the cast defects, which reduce fatigue strength, should be eliminated in order to realize a high reliability of fatigue strengths.
