Heterogeneities in Metallic Glasses: Atomistic Computer Simulations on the Structure and Mechanical Properties of Copper–Zirconium Alloys and Composites

Tobias Brink
The present thesis deals with molecular dynamics computer simulations of heterogeneities in copper–zirconium metallic glasses, ranging from intrinsic structural fluctuations to crystalline secondary phases. These heterogeneities define, on a microscopic scale, the properties of the glass, and an understanding of their nature and behaviour is required for deriving the proper structure–property relations. In terms of composite systems, we start with the amorphisation of copper nanolayers embedded in a metallic glass matrix. While copper is an...
