We measured the temperature dependence of the apparent specific heat of Cu 55Hf 25Ti 15Pd 5 glassy alloy (metallic glass) by a differential scanning calorimetry method during continuous heating, and investigated the structural relaxation and crystallization processes. The results of structural evolution obtained by transmission electron microscopy are discussed in line with the differential scanning calorimetry data. Kinetics of crystallization process of the supercooled liquid above the glass-transition temperature is also studied. This alloy shows a complex relaxation and crystallization processes which are discussed in the paper.
