Imagine a material that's stronger than steel, but just as versatile as plastic, able to take on a seemingly endless variety of forms. For decades, materials scientists have been trying to come up with just such an ideal substance, one that could be molded into complex shapes with the same ease and low expense as plastic but without sacrificing the strength and durability of metal. Now a team led by Jan Schroers, a materials scientist at Yale University, has shown that some recently developed...

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...

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. Approximately 50 to 65 vol pct of fibers were homogeneously distributed inside the amorphous matrix, although the matrix of the STS-fiber-reinforced composite contained a small amount of crystalline phases. The compressive test...
