Abstract
The kinetic glass transition of the Vit1 (Zr41.2Ti13.8Cu12.5Ni10.0Be22.5) bulk metallic glass (BMG) was calorimetrically studied by using the differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). A wide range of heating rate, q=0.5~100 K min-1, was adopted in the calorimetric experiments. The apparent values of the glass transition temperatures were determined from the DSC curves. Then the kinetic glass transition was analyzed by adopting the function in the form of the Vogel-Tammann-Fucher (VTF) type. In addition, by considering the glass transition of the BMG from non-equilibrium to kinetic equilibrium during the process of heating experiments, a new model which can be used to calculate the relaxation time near the glass transition temperature region was established. The relaxation time of the Vit1 BMG near the glass transition temperature region calculated by the new model was used to compare with the glass transition time (ttrans), as well as the relaxation time calculated by the viscosity and diffusion methods. The result shows that the relaxation time calculated based on the model can reflect the relaxation event reasonably near the glass transition temperature region. This work may provide some new perspectives or ideas for the study of the glass transition and relaxation of metallic glass.
