Wang, Hao and Zhang, H. F. and Hu, Z. Q. (2006) Tungsten fibre reinforced Zr-based bulk metallic glass composites. In: ACUN-5 International Composites Conference, 11-14 July 2006, Sydney, Australia.
A Zr-based bulk metallic glass (BMG) alloy with the composition (Zr55Al10Ni5Cu30)98.5Si1.5 was used as the base material to form BMG composites. Tungsten fiber reinforced BMG composites were successfully fabricated by pressure metal infiltration technique, with the volume fraction of the tungsten fiber ranging from 10% to 70%. Microstructure and mechanical properties of the BMG composites were investigated. Tungsten reinforcement significantly increased the material’s ductility by changing the compressive failure mode from single shear band propagation to multiple shear bands propagation, and transferring stress from matrix to tungsten fibers.
