    • Abstract


      The glass-forming ability (GFA) of ternary Mg–Cu–Dy alloys was systematically investigated by using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and X-ray diffractometry (XRD) techniques. The results showed that a series of ternary Mg–Cu–Dy bulk metallic glasses (BGMs) with a diameter of 4–8 mm were successfully fabricated in the system with conventional Cu-mold casting method. Mg55Cu32Dy13, Mg60Cu27Dy13, Mg65Cu25Dy10 and Mg70Cu17Dy13 BMGs exhibit a clear glass transition, a broad supercooled liquid region and different crystallization and melting behaviours. They have supercooled liquid region ($\Delta T_{x}$) from 41 K to 65 K, reduced glass transition temperature ($T_{rg}$) from 0.5363 to 0.5974 and 𝛾 parameter from 0.4038 to 0.4136. The 𝛾 shows a relatively good agreement with the GFA of the BGMs. On the other hand, a high fracture compressive strength of 624 MPa was obtained for Mg60Cu27Dy13 BMG.
