Deformation behavior of Ta wire-reinforced Zr-based bulk metallic glass composites

A Ta wire-reinforced Zr-based bulk metallic glass composite with a new type of structure was prepared successfully by the method of liquid metal infiltration. Ta wires distribute uniformly in the metallic glass matrix in the form of spirals. The composite exhibits two yield stages under compressive stress, and the samples are compressed into thin pancakes. The micro-cracks originate at the interface between the Ta wire and the metallic glass matrix and propagate perpendicularly to the interface, which then induce multiple shear bands in the metallic glass matrix due to the stress concentration. Shear cracks form in the metallic glass matrix during the continued loading process as a result of the interaction of shear bands. Deformation bands of Ta wires occur under the impact of shear bands. The local stress fields in the composite are changed obviously due to the introduction of the spiral-formed reinforcements. The investigation of the deformation behavior and mechanism suggests a new method for the application of bulk metallic glass composites as the structural materials.
