Abstract

The thermal stability and glass-forming ability (GFA) of Zr70Ni30-xAlx (x = 5 - 19) metallic alloys were investigated. Alloy with x = 8 has the largest critical diameter (dc) of 2 mm in the alloy series, which possesses the largest supercooled liquid region, Trg and γ value, simultaneously. Further addition of 2 - 4 at.% Nb to Zr70Ni22Al8 alloy by replacement of Zr increases the dc up to 6 mm. In addition, Zr70Ni22Al8 bulk metallic glass exhibits large compressive plastic strain of 13.8% with yielding stress of 1547 MPa and Young's modulus of 79 GPa. Addition of Nb increases the strength but lowers the plasticity.
