The atomic structure of the amorphous alloys of several transition metals (Fe, Co, Ni, and Cu) with zirconium is studied in terms of partial paired correlation functions. The short-range order parameters, namely, the shortest interatomic distances, coordination numbers, and the form of distribution functions, are compared and a correlation between the atomic structure and the interaction between atoms of different sorts is established. The study offers the possibility to model the spatial distribution of atoms and the physical properties of the analyzed alloys and predict the properties of new systems.
