Due to their superior strength, hardness and elastic strain limit, bulk metallic glass matrix composites are advocated as a material of the future. Nevertheless, they have low strength that renders them unusable in every application of structural engineering. Inoculation has been used to resolve this issue as an efficient means. Due to heterogeneous nucleation, Zr47.5Cu45.5Al5Co2 bulk metallic glass matrix composites (BMGMC) inoculated with ZrC have shown significant refinement in microstructure. Efforts have also been made to exploit modern development of … Continue reading “Investigating the Effect of Laser Additive Manufacturing on Microstructure Evolution of Inoculated Zr47.5Cu45.5Al5Co2 Bulk Metallic Glass Matrix Composites”

Investigating the Effect of Single Pass Laser Surface Treatment on Microstructure Evolution of Inoculated Zr47.5Cu45.5Al5Co2 and Non-Inoculated Zr65Cu15Al10Ni10 Bulk Metallic Glass Matrix Composites

A systematic study is carried out in which bulk metallic glass matrix composites with different percentages of ZrC subjected to a laser source of constant size (spot size). The effect of laser power and scan speed are evaluated. Bulk metallic glass matrix composites are advocated to be material of future owing to their superior strength, hardness and elastic strain limit. However, they possess poor toughness which makes them unusable in any structural engineering application. Inoculation has been used as effective … Continue reading “Investigating the Effect of Single Pass Laser Surface Treatment on Microstructure Evolution of Inoculated Zr47.5Cu45.5Al5Co2 and Non-Inoculated Zr65Cu15Al10Ni10 Bulk Metallic Glass Matrix Composites”
