Latest Amorphous metal Stories
Using rigorous computer calculations, researchers from Carnegie Mellon University and the Carnegie Institution of Washington have established evidence that supercooled silicon experiences a liquid-liquid phase transition, where at a certain temperature two different states of liquid silicon exist.
Researchers at MIT have made significant progress in understanding a class of materials that has resisted analysis for decades.
The new alloys are lighter and less expensive, but are still tough and ductile enough for use in aerospace applications
By Gao, Michael C Dogan, Omer N; King, Paul; Rollett, Anthony D; Widom, Michael The purpose of this work is to predict elastic and thermodynantie properties of chromium-based alloys based on first-principles calculations and to demonstrate an appropriate computational approach to develop new materials for high-temperature applications in energy systems.
By Lee, Kyuhong Lee, Sang-Bok; Lee, Sang-Kwan; Lee, Sunghak In the present study, a Zr-based amorphous alloy matrix composite reinforced with tungsten continuous fibers was fabricated without pores or defects by a liquid pressing process; the microstructures and mechanical properties of the fibers were investigated.
By Lee, Sang-Bok Lee, Sang-Kwan; Lee, Sunghak; Kim, Nack J The feasibility to fabricate the tungsten and STS-fiber- reinforced amorphous alloy matrix composites was verified by analyses of the thermal stress and cooling behavior between matrix and metallic fibers.
Imagine a plane that has wings made out of glass; thanks to a major breakthrough in understanding the nature of glass by scientists at the University of Bristol, this has just become a possibility.
