In this paper, the effects of different melt spinning speeds on the mechanical properties of (TiZr)0.5(Ni0.6Cr0.1V0.1)2.1 amorphous ribbons were studied. Tensile tests of the specimens were used to investigate mechanical behavior and mechanical properties of amorphous ribbons. The effects of cooling rate on the glass transition temperature of amorphous ribbons was discussed. The correlation between the microstructure of serrated flow behavior in stress-strain curves and melt spinning speeds of ribbons was also evaluated. In addition, when the spinning speed was 45 m/s, a large number of dense and uniform dimples appeared on the fractured surface of the specimens. Furthermore, characteristics of serrated flow behavior were obvious, which meant that Ti-Zr-Ni-Cr-V amorphous ribbons showed minor plastic behavior. It is assumed that the influence of free volume led to a serrated flow behavior of the amorphous materials, and made the amorphous material exhibit partially plastic properties. Increasing the strain rate sensitivity meant the free volume increased with the increasing spinning speed. Tensile strength (σb) and elongation (δ) of samples exhibited a dramatic increasing trend with an increase in the spinning speed. In particular, Ti-Zr-Ni-Cr-V amorphous ribbons showed better mechanical properties, namely the tensile strength of the amorphous ribbon samples significantly increased from 321 MPa at a spinning speed of 30 m/s to 675 MPa at a speed of 45 m/s. The elongation increased from 0.53% at a speed of 30 m/s to 1.29% at a speed of 45 m/s. View Full-Text
