PBS Program Name:
ARC 17/18 Discovery
Grant Program:
Discovery Projects
Grant Activity:
Structure-mechanical property relationships for bulk metallic glasses
Purpose:
This project aims to make developments in producing high toughness bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) by understanding their processing-structure-fracture toughness relationships. The project expects to generate new knowledge about how to control fracture toughness of BMGs via thermomechanical processing, how to characterise the nanoscale glassy structure using novel microscopy methods, and the mechanistic connection between structure and fracture toughness. Expected outcomes will be an enhanced capacity to develop and commercialise BMGs with mechanical properties superior to conventional metals. Anticipated benefits will be improved products for the transportation, aerospace, defence, biomedical devices, and three-dimensional printing industries.
