Abstract

A kind of novel Ti-based composites was developed by introducing different amounts of carbon element to the Ti50Cu23Ni20Sn7 bulk metallic glass forming alloys. The thermal stability and microstructural evolution of the composites were investigated. Room temperature compression tests reveal that the composite samples with 1% and 3% (mass fraction) carbon additions have higher fracture strength and obvious plastic strain of 2195 MPa, 3.1% and 1913 MPa, 1.3% respectively, compared with those of the corresponding carbon-free Ti50Ni20Cu23Sn7 alloys. The deformation mechanisms of the composites with improved mechanical properties were also discussed.
