Abstract

Lightweight Ti-based bulk amorphous structural metals with more than double the specific strength of conventional titanium alloys have been discovered. Thermal, elastic and mechanical properties of these metallic glasses were studied and are presented. These amorphous alloys exhibit good glass-forming ability, exceptional thermal stability and high strength. The research results have important implications for designing and developing low-density bulk metallic glasses. The technological potential of this class of lightweight Ti-based glassy alloys as structural metals is very promising.
