Metallic glass that's stronger and lasts longer The normal structure of metals is crystalline. Glass, on the other hand, is amorphous. But it's possible to make amorphous forms of metal, metallic glasses, which can be remarkably strong, having many properties equal to or better than their crystalline metal cousins. The catch is that bulk metallic glasses are highly susceptible to fatigue, a severe problem for their use as structural materials. Now researchers at the U.S. Department of...

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. Approximately 60 vol pct of the fibers was distributed inside the amorphous matrix, although the matrix of the composite also contained a small number of polygonal crystalline...
