Cover Story (view full-size image): Many efforts have been made to develop models and parameters to predict the glass-forming ability of different alloy systems. By combining basic thermodynamic calculations and empirically verified correlations between structural, thermodynamic, and kinetic parameters and the phase formation behavior of alloys, a fast computational model for the prediction of glass-forming alloy compositions and their critical cooling rates has been developed. In our report, we present the developed model and compare its behavior, as predicted, to that of the well-known bulk metallic glass-forming systems PdNiP, CuMgCa, CuZrTi, and CuZrTiNi. An algorithm has been constructed to pinpoint compositions with a minimum critical cooling rate to find promising new glass-forming compositions. View this paper.
