Thermodynamics of the Pd������Ni������Cu������P������ metallic glass-forming alloy

Kuno, Masahiro 15 March 2001 (has links)
By the investigation of the bulk metallic glass-forming liquids that have very low critical cooling rates, the thermodynamics of metallic glasses can be clarified. For studying thermodynamic properties, such as the specific heat capacity, calorimetry (DSC) is utilized and one of the most used instruments is the differential scanning calorimeter. In this study calorimetry was used to investigate the thermodynamics of the Pd������Ni������Cu������P������ alloy. The specific heat capacity of the liquid and crystalline state, enthalpy, entropy, as well as Gibbs free energy difference between the liquid and crystalline state were measured and evaluated in comparison with previous studies of the alloy. The Pd������Ni������Cu������P������ alloy is known as a metallic glass-forming alloy that has high ability for vitrification without crystallization. By observing the onset of heat flux of the exothermic reactions in the DSC, the time-temperature-transformation diagram can be constructed, and the diagram confirms the high ability for the vitrification for the sample. In addition, the effect of fluxing by B���O��� to reduce heterogeneous nucleation is determined by the TTT-diagram. The enthalpy change during the crystallization was directly measured in experiments in which the sample was held isothermally in the DSC. Both enthalpies, calculated from the specific heat capacity measurements and direct measured enthalpy exactly match each other. The very interesting effect in these experiments is an effect of heat treatment in the samples. Two glass transition temperatures can be noticeably recognized by scanning the exothermic event of the sample with the DSC. The material separates into two undercooled liquids. The two phases that are separated during heat treatment can be described by two different fragility parameters. / Graduation date: 2001

Amorphous phase separation in a bulk metallic glass of negative heat of mixing. / 對於具有負混合熱的塊狀金屬玻璃非晶相分離的研究 / Amorphous phase separation in a bulk metallic glass of negative heat of mixing. / Dui yu ju you fu hun he re de kuai zhuang jin shu bo li fei jing xiang fen li de yan jiu

過去幾十年當中,金屬玻璃(包括塊狀金屬玻璃)中非晶相分離的發生已經成為了一個具有爭議性的課題。一些報告報導在具有負混合熱的Pd-Ni-P合金體系中發生了非晶相分離。然而,有一些報告聲稱相分離不能在Pd-Ni-P非晶合金中被觀察到。文獻分析表明,困難在於缺乏直接的實驗證據。 / 為了解決這個難題,示差掃描量熱儀、高分辨電子顯微鏡、掃描透射模式下的高角環射暗場相、以及能量色散X射線光譜儀等檢測儀器在我們實驗當中被使用。同時為了清楚展示非晶相分離反應,在過冷Pd₄₁.₂₅Ni₄₁.₂₅P₁₇.₅熔體被冷卻為固態非晶樣品之前引入了中間熱退火處理。 / 實驗研究了三種經由不同路徑製備的A、B、C型號樣品。結果表明在非晶/液態Pd₄₁.₂₅Ni₄₁.₂₅P₁₇.₅合金中可能存在獨特的短程有序結構,它會導致相分離的發生。同时研究發現,在大約625 K,調幅分解的持續時間的下限大概是200 s。調幅分解的時間常數R在大約625 K 下為0.002 s⁻¹。三种类型样品在不同的溫度下被退火從而獲得部分的結晶。A型號和B型號具有相似的行為。在低溫下,圓形的核心首先形成,接著發生共晶反應。在高溫下,出現了一種形狀為立方體的析出相。在C型號的樣品當中,核心和立方的析出物同時被發現。但是核心的成分分佈與A和B型號中出現的不同。同時,隨著退火時間的加長形核的數量也具有獨特的行為表現。作為對比,Pd₄₀Ni₄₀P₂₀塊狀金屬玻璃的結晶行為也被展開了研究。同樣的,以形成核心開始,但是它的成分分佈異於A和B型號的樣品。 / Amorphous phase separation in metallic glass (including bulk metallic glass) has been a controversial issue in the past several decades. There are reports saying that amorphous phase separation occurs in Pd-Ni-P, which has a negative heat of mixing among its constituent elements. However, there are also as many reports claiming that phase separation is absent in amorphous Pd-Ni-P alloys. The lack of direct experimental evidence makes the issue to be difficult to be resolved. / To solve this problem, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM), high angle annular dark field (HAADF) in scanning transmission electron microscopy, and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) have been employed. Intermediate thermal annealing is introduced before an undercooled Pd₄₁.₂₅Ni₄₁.₂₅P₁₇.₅ melt is cooled down to become a solid amorphous specimen. / A-type, B-type, and C-type specimens of composition, Pd₄₁.₂₅Ni₄₁.₂₅ P₁₇.₅, have been prepared via three different cooling paths. It was found that amorphous phase separation indeed occurs in C-type specimens. Results suggest that there may be unique short range orders in amorphous/liquid Pd₄₁.₂₅Ni₄₁.₂₅P₁₇.₅, which are responsible for the phase separation. Experimental arrangements were made to study the occurrence of spinodal reaction in undercooled molten Pd₄₁.₇₅Ni₄₁.₇₅P₁₇.₅ alloys as a function of time. The lower bound of the duration of the spinodal decomposition at a temperature of {U+2248}625 K is about 200 s and the time constant R of the spinodal decomposition at a temperature of {U+2248}625 K is 0.002 s⁻¹. / A-type and B-type specimens have similar crystallization behavior. At low temperature, it starts with the formation of a spherical core and then eutectic crystallization takes over. At higher temperatures, an additional phase in the shape of a cube appears. In annealed C-type specimens, cores and cubic precipitates are also found. However, the composition profile of the cores is different and the number of nucleation events versus time has peculiar characteristics. The crystallization behavior of Pd₄₀Ni₄₀P₂₀ BMG was studied for comparison. It again starts out with the formation of a core, but with a composition profile different from those of A-type and B-type specimens. / Detailed summary in vernacular field only. / Detailed summary in

Rheological measurements of bulk metallic glass forming alloys above the liquidus temperature

Shaw, Tyler A. 05 November 2004 (has links)
A high temperature high vacuum rheometer has been designed, fabricated, and tested for the study of the steady shear viscosity for multicomponent bulk metallic glass forming alloys. This rheometer has an operating range up to 1525 K, rotational frequencies of 9.4*10⁻³-3.7*10¹ radians/s, and a calibrated viscosity range of 9.6*10⁻³ and 1.2*10² Pa*s while maintaining absolute pressures pressure < 1*10⁻⁶ mbar. Zr[subscript 41.2]Ti[subscript 13.8]Cu[subscript 10.0]Ni[subscript 12.5]Be[subscript 22.5] (Vitreloy 1) is reported. The unexpected findings of non-Newtonian behavior above the liquidus temperature were observed. Observations of shear thinning, thixotropic, and viscoelastic behaviors have been made. Our results show that Vitreloy 1 can be modeled as a power law fluid, with a power law exponent of approximately -0.5 for high shear rates. We attribute the non-Newtonian behavior to structural ordering within the melt. The technological and scientific implications for non-Newtonian behavior are discussed. / Graduation date: 2005
