In order to examine mechanical properties of a metallic glass Zr 50Cu40Al10 in low temperature below room temperature, the temperature T dependence of mechanical resonance of ultrasonic wave are measured. The mechanical resonance frequency in an as-quenched sample shows an abrupt increase at 200K for longitudinal wave and 160 K for transverse wave with decreasing T. After this abrupt increase, the sound propagation cannot be detected below these temperatures but the wave propagation is restored with increasing fand there is an abrupt decrease at 260K for the both wave modes. The similar hysteresis is observed in temperature dependence of the electrical resistivity. These suggest a kind of structure instability of Zr 50Cu40Al10 low temperature region.
