Abstract

Effect of multiple alloying elements on the glass-forming ability, thermal stability, and crystallization behavior of Zr-based glass-forming alloys were studied in the present work. We investigated the effect of complete or partial substitution of Ti and Ni with similar early and late transition metals, respectively, on the glass-forming ability and crystallization behavior of the Zr50Ti10Cu20Ni10Al10 alloy. Poor correlation was observed between different parameters indicating the glass-forming ability and the critical size of the obtained glassy samples. Importance of the width of the crystallization interval is emphasized. The kinetics of primary crystallization, i.e., the rate of nucleation and rate of growth of the nuclei of primary crystals is very different from that of the eutectic alloys. Thus, it is difficult to estimate the glass-forming ability only on the basis of the empirical parameters not taking into account the crystallization behavior and the crystallization interval.
