Abstract:

The subject of this program was a comprehensive study of the preparation and the mechanical, thermal, structural and electrochemical properties of titanium based metallic glasses, with emphasis on their wear properties, as well as an extension of this work to some related transition metal based alloy glasses. This work required several innovations in equipment and experimental techniques as well as construction of specialized facilities, in particular design of a melt spinner capable of processing reactive alloys, development of a method to measure the Youngs modulus of very small samples, and construction of a wear test unit.
